CHARLESTON – It’s no trick-we could be holding a Halloween treat for you! In the spirit of Halloween, we’ve found a list of Unclaimed Property holders with spooky names. We found people named “Boo” and “Fear” and several other frightening monikers. Of course, another Halloween tradition is candy and sweets, so we’ve added a few of those names to the list as well.

“We’ve done several of these holiday related unclaimed property holder lists before and had great success, not only finding the property owners listed, but in getting the attention of others, prompting them to do an unclaimed property search for their name,” said State Treasurer John Perdue. “We’re holding millions of dollars in unclaimed property, so we’re always looking for unique ways to get people’s attention and have them search and see if some of that money could be theirs.”

Are you, or someone you know, among these spooky unclaimed property holders?
