Over One Billion Dollars Pending Claim is cash that could be yours. This money sits in an unclaimed government fund account until the rightful owner claims it.
Triangle business owner Juan Chambers lost several checks worth about $45,000.
“I probably lost them somewhere in the move here or in my office,” Chambers said. Despite the loss of the actual checks, he had copies of the lost checks.
“I went to the bank and asked them about it, and then the bank said, ‘well, we sent it to the state.’
The bank sent the money to the state because the North Carolina treasurer’s office has an unclaimed funds division where funds are transferred to a company that did business with someone in the state, and if that company could no longer contact the person, they were required by law to transfer the money to deposit to state treasurer.
NC Treasurer Dale Falwell says, “It’s been a record year, with over $110 million paid out this year from NCcash.com.”
While it’s been a record year for consumer refunds, Falwell says more than $1 billion is still pending claims.
“We have almost 19 million records of things that people own. We are doing everything we can to return them to their rightful owners,” Folwell adds.
Chambers did sue the state to get his money. He says he was told, “We’re going to need more documentation to be able to release this.” Chambers says he provided proof that the money was his and did receive a little more than half of the $45,000, but was unable to retrieve the last missing $15,000 check written from his business in his name.
“I sent the documents that say I own this company. This is me, this person. Here’s my ID, here’s everything you expect, and they still refuse.’
Chambers contacted ABC11 troubleshooter Diane Wilson, and Wilson contacted the state treasurer’s office.
“You came into contact with them and it was like one night.”
A representative from the state treasurer’s office said they needed certain documents, and we received that Chambers now has his $15,000.
“I got my money finally thanks to you.”
