This Twitter Thread Might Help You Find Money


No, it’s not a scam or a multi-level marketing scheme. This Twitter thread is really helping people find money in a few easy steps.

Yashar Ali is a prominent journalist known for breaking major news stories. He’s also quite popular on Twitter. On Wednesday, he posted a thread of several tweets explaining what unclaimed property is, and how it might help you find some money.

I say “find some money” instead of “make some money” because the money is already yours, you just don’t know it yet.

How It Works

Basically, the Twitter thread details how to access any unclaimed property that might be owed to you. This could be old security deposits, business payments, or other money that’s legally yours. If people try to pay you money but can’t find you, that money goes into a government fund, where it’s just sitting, waiting for you to find it.

Ali says in his tweets, “Every state allows you to search and claim unclaimed property for free. Please don’t ever use any of these scam companies…you don’t need them.” Several state governments including Texas have endorsed Ali’s thread on the issue and support his efforts to find his followers money and distribute unclaimed property to its rightful owners.

The thread recommends that you search in every state you’ve ever lived in, and using any nicknames or common misspellings. It sounds daunting, but it’s not. The thread includes the websites for every state. All you have to do is click on the proper site, put in your name or business name and see if there’s any unclaimed property waiting for you!

There are billions of dollars in unclaimed property out there across the U.S. With that much money out there, it’s more than possible that there’s something for you or someone in your household. I found several hundred dollars in unclaimed property for my boyfriend’s business.

With unemployment at an all-time high, it’s definitely not the time to be leaving money on the table. It’s worth taking five minutes and potentially finding a whole bunch of cash!
