Treasurer Warns of Unclaimed Property Scam (Aug 04, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — State Treasurer Ken Miller is warning Oklahomans to be aware of an email scam in which recipients are notified they have unclaimed property.

Miller said Thursday the fraudulent emails appear to originate from the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, but he says they are bogus.

Miller says the email recipients who respond are directed to contact an attorney overseas.

Miller's office routinely seeks Oklahomans who have unclaimed property, but he says they never direct recipients to a private third party, charge fees or request bank account information.

The treasurer's office returned more than $15.8 million to its rightful owners during the most recent fiscal year.

Miller's office operates a searchable database at www.treasurer.ok.gov .
