It may seem silly, but I wonder if I've got a bank account out there in which I have unclaimed money. Wouldn't that be cool? How can I check?
The one I've seen recommended by Clark Howard is missingmoney.com, takes your last name, and the state you want to search in, you can also add first name, but its optional.
YMCbuzz: since your profile says you are in Canada, you are in luck.
Canadian banks must turn over their unclaimed accounts to the bank of Canada.
They have an Unclaimed Balances page that has a search feature to see if you have missing millions from long lost relatives.
