Most notifications are via postcard
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 29, 2014) — State treasurer Todd Hollenbach is cautioning Kentuckians to be wary of suspicious mail, email or other contact regarding unclaimed property that does not include the official Kentucky State Treasury letterhead. The Treasurer’s office was recently notified of the suspicious mailings by the National Unclaimed Property Association (NAUPA).
“The majority of these mailings are coming in the form of a postcard with a Denver, Colo. postmark and an unclaimed property message notification,” Hollenbach said.
The cards are usually green, blue, yellow, or orange and instruct the recipient to call a toll free number with a provided personal ID number. The callers are then directed to the NAUPA website.
