With 3 Days Till Christmas, Zweifel Says Check His List


Dasher, Dancer, Vixen, Comet, Donner and Rudolph all have Unclaimed Property; Prancer, Cupid and Blitzen have to wait until next year

JEFFERSON CITY, MO – December 22, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — With only three days until Christmas, State Treasurer Clint Zweifel is letting Missourians know there are still about 3.5 million gifts worth more than $600 million waiting for those last minute shoppers.

Included on Treasurer Zweifel’s Unclaimed Property list are 52 named Santa, 66 named Donner, 40 named Dancer, 10 named Comet, 1 named Vixen and 31 named Stocking.

“During this holiday season some gifts are made of money instead of costing money. In fact, some just require a simple search at ShowMeMoney.com and a little paper work,” Treasurer Zweifel said. “There is no better time than now to go online and see if you, your family and your friends are one in 10 Missourians who has some unclaimed property. In these tough economic times, it is more important than ever Missourians have their money returned to them.”

So far during fiscal year 2010, the average Unclaimed Property claim has been about $360, with more than 43,000 accounts receiving more than $15 million. Treasurer Zweifel said he was on pace to increase accounts and assets returned by more than 10 percent over fiscal year 2009.

“Efficiencies, technology and increased marketing efforts are helping us grow returns to Missourians,” Treasurer Zweifel said. “Before this holiday season winds down, everyone should be visiting ShowMeMoney.com. Accounts are added almost daily, and whether it is $10 or $10,000, the extra dollars can always come in handy.”
