Has anyone ever heard of National Center for Unclaimed Funds? I got a letter from them stating I had 30 days to respond to them that they were holding funds due to me. It sounded really fishy. I've googled and looked them up on ripoff but I can't really seem to find anything.

Before I call them I wanted to see if anyone else had gotten anything from them. All I know is there based out of California. There is only a PO Box listed on the envelope. No physical address.

I'm not expecting money from anything. I just thought it was odd that I would receive something like this.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

btw....I wasn't sure which forum to post this under.




that is a scam.i got that too and it is one of those that ask you for your info that way.i just delete it every time as i have gotten more than one.

How do you know it's a scam? The only stuff I find on ripoff report is they verify address and then say something is on it's way. But then nothing ever comes. I can't find any info stating the ask for money up front.

Ok...Now I'm catching on. It concerned me because I had never heard of them and couldn't hardly find any info on them.

Thanks for the info.

You can also go to your states Unclaimed Funds site-not sure exactly how it would be listed, and it will list all the people who have unclaimed funds. I think I found ours once on our States website. That is the legal one. I had a friend that had had a deposit from many years ago on a utility bill that he collected.

There were alot of people in our area getting those type of letters, and the news station did a story on it. Turns out, you send them their "finders fee" and they tell you if you have money--a complete scam!!

I have been trying to do research on The National Center for Unclaimed Funds for at lease three years now. The number that they gave me to call and speak to someone doesn't work. The message always says "the number you are calling from in not valid, please call back from a valid telephone number" I was told that I have six checks that they are trying to mail to me, and til this day haven't seen one. I am very thankful to know it is a scam.
