Consumers warned of unclaimed funds scam


COLUMBUS -- Don't pay money to claim your money.

"No Ohioan should ever pay to search for unclaimed funds or receive a claim form," Ohio Department of Commerce Director David Goodman said in a statement.

Mr. Goodman said the state issued a "cease and desist order" against Unclaimed Money LLC, doing business as Unclaimed Moneydb.com. The order tells the company to "stop charging for and producing phony and misleading unclaimed funds forms," or the state will begin legal action.
