    Yes thankfully in TN it is still 3 years, and they must make an attempt to contact you. So it seems Georgia, and California, are chief among the thieves. Good info to have. Thanks Michael..

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      You are welcome. I hope that everyone will look up what the laws are in their own states.


      • RICHARD

        You already told me Michael, I live in California. I guess I better start rounding up all my assets. It gets scarier every day.

  • Bubba Johnson

    You can teach an old dog a new trick.
    Thank you sir for the info

  • DJohn1

    Someone please tell me the difference between this and a criminal mafia organization? I think the professional thief is more honest.
    I am waiting for them to do this to the right person at the wrong time. But then a lot of bankers will be deceased. That is after they figure out how to return the money they stole. Some people are just not very nice about losing their money. I would not wish on my worst enemy things these people are likely to do to them.
    California again. Seems like that state has a great deal of difficulty with the term honest government. Yet a lot of people think that is lab for seeing if something can be pulled on the rest of the country.
    We are all dependent on banks to cash our checks and to provide money in return for those checks. Personally I think putting the money in envelopes works better. If you put the right amount in an envelope for each bill, Then you have a system which is unlikely to cheat you with book keeping.
    The bank is unlikely to be able to steal what they don’t have.

    • Mike Smithy

      Assuming there is actually gold in Fort Knox and if someone was caught trying to steal it, I think you could apply the same logic as an affirmative defense. Your courtroom testimony would go something like this: “Your honor, the government wasn’t using it, so I decided to take it and put it to use for the greater good”.

    • Domdo

      The difference is that the mafia has a higher moral ground as they are taking a risk.

    • dan

      Escheatment. This is legal everywhere. Let’s all calm down.

      • Mondobeyondo

        Of course it’s legal. The governments change the laws to make it legal. It may be wrong, but it’s legal!

    • peacefield

      Yes, it is outright STEALING, nothing short of thievery.

    • Angry Jesus

      If you believe putting money in envelopes in correlation for each of your bills is a system that will not cheat you, then you have a very poor understanding of monetary theory and moneychanging as a whole. The bank steals what they don’t have every second of every day. It’s called fractional reserve and fiat, which comes with the twin evils known as interest & usury which give birth to debt. They can simply obliterate the money in your envelopes through the process of quantitative easing and inflation. And yes, I’m still angry.

    • Drud

      Our Oligarchy (Government, Corporations, Banks, et al.) are EXACTLy like the mafia, with but one critical difference: nothing they do is “illegal” because they make the laws.

    • Hammerstrike

      The difference is simple, one practicie is legal, the other is not.

    • kimsarah

      The difference is, the mafia is learning new tricks from the banksters.

    • nekksys

      “Yet a lot of people think [California] is lab for seeing if something can be pulled on the rest of the country.”

      Well, California and Illinois… Illinois is a freakin’ JOKE…

  • Mike Smithy

    Considering the fact that the banks are paying next to nothing in interest, my advice to everyone is to withdrawal your money and stuff it in your mattress. Trust me, aside from the lumps, you will likely sleep better knowing you have peace of mind. As a bonus, you get the opportunity to stick it to the banksters and politicians.

  • Mondobeyondo

    Take whatever money you have left, and invest it in gold or silver. Physical metals are the best. Be extremely sceptical about precious metals stocks, or those represented only on paper (gold and silver certificates, etc.)

    • Jimbo

      The whole point of Gold and Silver is that they are portable ways to hold value. Once you decide to buy PM’s then the only real control you have is to keep them in your own custody. I just bought a beautiful 2oz Perth Mint Gold coin. I can’t stop looking at it. The quality and detail is striking to behold. It tells me on its face that it is 2 Troy ounces of 99.9 pure Gold, it is in a protective cover and has paperwork to prove its authenticity.
      I would much rather have this coin than the $2500 of Fiat that I exchanged for it. I would much rather have this coin than some numbers on a screen telling me that I had 2oz of “allocated” gold stored in some vault somewhere.
      If you can’t stretch to buying Gold, treat yourself to a Silver coin.
      Hold it and look at it and you will begin to understand the real value of money.

    • Firstgarden

      Where there is gold, thar be thieves.

    • a bry

      in all reality when our monetary structure goes down you all really think precious metals are going to mean crap when people are bartering for food, clean water and clothing/blankets?

      • Mike Smithy

        Absolutely. If I have something you need, I would take gold or silver before I would take fiat currency.

        • Howl@theMoon

          Try trading real needs. Precious metals are only as valuable as the fiat currency provides it.

          • Jimbo

            Look at Weimar Germany, Argentina, Zimbabwe etc. Those holding PM’s did not see the value of their savings destroyed.
            PM’s hold value when currency devalues. It is not a crackpot theory, it is an established fact that has been tried and tested many times throughout history.

      • Jimbo

        You need to understand the nature of a monetary collapse. Paper currency will be worth less as each day passes but PM’s and other hard assets will retain value. When the mess is sorted out and currency is re-valued, those with dollars may find that their dollar is only worth 1/100th of its previous value. Gold may be worth $50,000 an ounce but its purchasing power for real goods will likely be the same as it is today.

        If the crisis is severe enough to cause major food shortages, you will find that most people who had the foresight to buy PM’s will also have a bit of food tucked away as well.
        As for blankets, they will not disappear from your linen cupboard overnight.

    • hiphoptillyodrop@thecoffeshop

      Invest in the Kingdom of God. The investment goes ahead of you and the banksters cannot take it away. It will not mold, or rust and cannot be stolen. Heck, in Heaven the streets are paved with gold. You know what that means? Gold is worthless like dirt. That’s how rich God is!

  • Undecider

    Tar and feather. It serves a purpose.

  • Howl@theMoon

    Pretty sure it’s a full moon time for all the crazies to come out. No wonder the comments lately and fairy tales are more amusing. Pulling money out of the bank is the worst thing to do. This is if you don’t touch your money for a long period of time. Basically those who are dead. If people are living paycheck to paycheck why would they have a savings account sitting untouched for so long…doesn’t make much sense. You are stretching out on a limb this time.

    • Mike Smithy

      How is it that pulling your money is the worst thing to do? In the event of a bank run, default or banking holiday, do you really think that the FDIC or FSLIC has sufficient funding to put their money where their mouth is?

      • Paul

        Mike, don’t waste your time with trolls.

        • Mike Smithy


          • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

            I like trolls. Sometimes they can spark an interesting conversation.

            In fact, I would like to invite the trolls (and everyone else) to comment on my news website…



          • Mike Smithy

            I don’t mind trolls as long as they can make an intelligent argument that is fact based. Unfortunately, most are unable to do so, and I suspect that they are nothing more than dumbed down operatives for Media Matters that are paid to spew their poisonous rhetoric.

          • Howl@theMoon

            I am neither. Just someone who doesn’t fall for the scaremongers tactics. While you all are worried about this stuff I am off enjoying life and working and living the American dream debt free mind you.

      • Howl@theMoon

        Because if everyone pulls their money out at once that will cause complete havoc on the system. Sure keep some cash on hand but trying to scare people into doing it. Not to mention you can get unclaimed money back. Maybe your grandma had an account no one knew about and died only later to find out about it. You can get it back. That’s all this article is stating. If you have direct deposit you could have $1 put in each account and if would be active. So really this article is pointless.

        • Drud

          Idiocy. This is like saying if everyone’s house in your neighborhood is on fire, don’t use your hose, because EVERYONE will be doing that…and it will overwhelm the system. Central Banking is a house of cards on a crumbling foundation, which has been built on an entirely faulty premise. EVERY FIAT CURRENCY IN HISTORY (at least 3800 of them) has failed and for the exact same reasons. An you know what? I bet every time there were plenty of people saying “Well, this time it’s different…”

          • Howl@theMoon

            Your point is idiocy. First your hose wouldn’t put out a house fire. Second pretty sure you wouldn’t be the one fighting the fire as you would have been evacuated. Try again.

    • alan

      I work overseas and my wife puts her jewelry in a safety deposit box. Because its suppose to be safe! I bet a lot of military people do too.

      • laura m.

        alan: only use a safety deposit box for house papers, any other important papers. Never jewelry or gold/silver coins. Warnings were given several decades ago in financial newsletters about this.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      Why is pulling your money out of the bank “the worst thing to do”?

      Because we would miss out on all of those pennies of interest the bank pays use?

      Yes, everyone should not be stuffing their mattresses with thousands of dollars of cash, but putting money in banks can’t be dangerous as well as we saw in Cyprus.

  • Paul

    I understand that direct deposit is required by some companies (which, in my opinion, is orchestrated to force people to use banks). If you have to use a bank, only leave in the amount required to keep the account active and withdraw the rest of your money at least once a week; preferably make daily ATM withdrawals.

    Some people will argue against this but ask yourself this question: If a major event of some kind takes place do you really believe you’ll be able to go to your bank and take out your money? ATM’s only hold so much and when events do happen runs on ATM’s are severe. Banks don’t protect your money.

    To protect yourself against the banks keep your money out of the banks. But, if your job requires direct deposit, withdrawn your money daily and leave in the required amount the keep the account opened.

    The American economy is not stabilizing. Do the research and see the truth

    • Guest

      Or is it orchestrated to use a paperless currency?? Who needs paper when a computer based economy is endless

      • alan

        Much easier to loot too.

      • Mike Smithy

        A move to digital currency is the master plan in conjunction with biometric identification. What do you think the mark of the beast is all about as foretold in Revelation?

  • Sig

    This doesn’t surprise me. I know this Redneck fella who lives South Orlando area. I visited him a few times to pray with him, cuz he is from my church. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw piles and piles of scrap metal and copper in his back yard, Just these HUGE piles. I asked him about it and he said that that was his 401K plan. Dang piles are so big, there ain’t no way anybody is going to be able to walk off with it. And the dad gum Yankees laugh at us, well now the laugh is on YOU. Go right ahead and do business with them stupid stockbrokers and banks.

    • Firstgarden

      Egads, the state hath need of such “immovable” assets. Do I hear bulldozers?

  • Richard

    Excellent article, Michael. As I was reading, I was steeling myself for the inevitable silly rhetorical question or emotive expression… Never happened. A really good, informative article where the implications are entirely obvious and overwhelming on their own merits. MUCH more powerful for the lack of a ‘helping’ hand! Thanks a million.

    This is one of the reasons I love Texas…….

    Is there a time limit for claiming my property?

    No, the Comptroller’s office acts only as custodian for the missing owners, holding the property
    in trust until it is claimed. Texas never takes legal ownership of the property, so there is no time
    limit for filing a claim.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      But in other states the rules are very different.

      • AwareandawakeONInstagram

        no doubt, and I can understand the outrage of it.

    • kimsarah

      Sorry, but shouldn’t Texas have seceded by now?
      Then our border fence could run straight from New Mexico to Louisiana and not have to touch Mexico.

  • Jimbo

    The government steals from my bank account every year. If I earn interest on savings, I have to pay income tax on that interest. Even when my savings interest fails to beat inflation and in real terms I have made a loss.
    I pay tax when I earn, I pay tax when I spend and I pay tax when I save. If I pass my savings on to my children, they will pay inheritance tax.

    • Rebecca

    • Hammerstrike

      Inflation itself is naught but theft.

      • GSOB

        Inflation is an invisible tax.

        Instead of taxing people directly, the politicians fool people.

        They increase government spending but they don’t collect enough tax
        revenues to pay for it.

        So, they print up the money to make up the difference and spend it into circulation.

        • kimsarah

          But the official inflation rate is only 1-2 percent, and unemployment keeps going down. And stock and asset prices keep going up. What a party.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      It is true – we are being taxed into oblivion.


      • 2Gary2

        we need a wealth tax on the rich. I love senator Warren-tax the wealthy to reduce student loan interest rates. Love seeing conservatives foam at the mouth at this.

        MCD CEO says 10.10 min wage will not hurt the company–love seeing conservatives be so wrong about the “damage” of raising the min wage.

        • CallmeAdam

          Sure. It certainly may not hurt a conglomerate big enough to have a CEO, but as for small businesses – whole different ballgame.

          Also, I don’t see the wisdom behind taxing an individual solely due to his/her acquired wealth. Sound like a ‘spite’ tax moreso than a ‘wealth’ tax.

        • Rodster

          There are no conservatives in Washington. It’s all n your head. That’s why we are in the current mess we are in. But be our guest and keep attacking your imaginary enemy.

        • disqus_c197zi57ib

          You sound like someone who has not acquired or accomplished anything in your pathetic life. For you it is about punishing others who have acquired some degree of wealth. The minimum wage is just that a starting wage and if you have some ambition you move on to better paying jobs when you have a skill that is worth more money.

          • kimsarah

            Punishing those who have acquired their wealth by robbing and defrauding others is too kind of a response.

        • kimsarah

          Try the financial transaction tax, exempting pensions and 401-k accounts.
          Debt problem solved.
          And close the offshore tax haven loopholes.
          Finally, dream on.

        • nekksys

          I honestly love watching folks spew this “wealth redistribution” line… Reminds me of how disconnected some people are from reality.

          No, McDonald’s Corporation may not be harmed by a Federal minimum wage of $10.10. They’ll just raise prices and pass on the costs to consumers. The same holds true with any locally owned business that has regular employees. Prices will rise, services will decline and many will close up shop.

          It’s a known fact you cannot spend your way to prosperity just like you can’t borrow your way out of debt. You also can’t take from one to give to another as a means of making things “fair.” Life doesn’t work that way. For example, if you were one of those who’s bank account was being confiscated and divvied out to the poor, would you be happy about that? If you think you would, then I’ll be right there to take every penny you have to offer!!! And your 2nd car… And your vacation house… And your other dog… All because you don’t really “need” all those extra things. See how that works now?

          It’s all good to think you can play Robin Hood but the reality is far different.

          • 2Gary2

            you can borrow your way out of debt-I did it. Its called leverage.

            As for jobs that will go out of business-any job that can not pay a decent wage should go out of business. Otherwise it is us taxpayers subsidizing the company with supports for their low paid employee.

            ANY company who’s business plan is for the gov to support their business so they can pay poverty wages needs to not be in business.

          • nekksys

            So what happens when all these businesses close down?

          • 2Gary2

            then they close down-good riddance.

            ANY company who’s business plan is for the gov to support their business
            so they can pay poverty wages needs to not be in business.

          • nekksys

      All part of the plan to convert our country to communism. Communists want to eliminate inheritance, need a progressive tax system, and they most definitely want to destroy savings accounts of all kinds. They want to do this so the state can take care of you.

    This reminds me of what the Protestant kings did during the Reformation. We Protestants think the Reformation was all about spreading gospel truth. The kings of Protestant Europe allowed the Reformation so they could confiscate the wealth of the Catholic Institutions. Never trust governments.

    • Hammerstrike

      A wealth that had been confiscated from the rest of society, robbed with self-serving lies instead of a sword, what the protestant kings did was going after what was then a criminal organization spanning a large part of europe.

  • Round Objects

    In all fairness to the Australian government the funds are seized to stop the banks whittling away the money in fees. If you try to access your funds and find it’s gone the bank directs you to the government which will in turn return it. At least the government is securing your unused money from the filthy paws of the banks.

    • Orac4Prez

      The same is true for Superannuation (retirement) accounts, etc. The only problem is the governments seem to be pretty pathetic and loose track of the funds themselves. I had money in an account and couldn’t put money into it for a while, so the government closed it down. I couldn’t get unemployment benefits due to the fact that I had money in a superannuation account, but the details the unemployment body (Centrelink) had were incorrect anyway. The money well and truely vanished. On top of that some businesses don’t pay the money into you super account because you are only on a short term contract and if they do, they don’t pass on the information. In one case the boss simply had the money in a dummy account which would move to his if the employee was let go before 3 months.
      For a long time, the banks and super accounts charged a huge fee to close accounts, and usually didnt advise you until all the money was whittled away.

  • trp878

    True, happened to me around 1989. Only a small amount but it took me about 6 months to secure what was rightfully mine.

  • Gabe Elton

    You are right Michael. I live in Texas and had a credit union that I used more than a decade ago, 300 miles away from where I live now, track me down to let me know they had $164 of mine that they were about to turn over to the state. This happened THIS week.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      That is quite chilling to hear.


  • El Pollo de Oro

    This one is a no-brainer if you’re of a prepper/libertarian viewpoint: don’t keep gold in a bank because the banksters will steal it in a minute. Of course, anyone who listens to Gerald Celente or Alex Jones already knows that.

    • Hammerstrike

      Back in Roosevelt´s era, a lot more people trusted the governement and handed over the gold without much resistance or crookery of their own (lead or tungsten with a paper-thin gold coating).

      Between those too poor or dumb to afford significant reserves of gold and the wealthy using offshore accounts, there won´t be much left for the governement robbers.

  • Trailer Park Investor

    Just another hidden tax.
    Did you know a loaf of bread was taxed 137 times before it got to your table? And that was back in 1969.
    From the seed supplier, the farmer, wholesaler, bulk supplier, manufacturer, distributor, grocery store every where and anything going into that loaf of bread is taxed and hard too.
    Now wonder 2 cents worth of wheat in a loaf of bread cost you $2.00 UP in your grocery store. It’s a hellof ah racket.

  • piccadillybabe

    My bank informed me that I would lose my savings account if I did not sign this document they sent me claiming it. That was a little unnerving to me. With the economic climate what it is, having a little savings can sometimes make a huge difference in a case of job loss or illness, etc. If for some reason, I had not signed that document claiming it, it could be gone now. Did not realize what a widespread problem this has become. Desperate times, desperate measures…..

    To make the world a better place like dreamers often will

    We left our bed of roses to push that rock up hill

    The way we went about our task proved destined for to fail

    It’s a different world now to say the least

    The sun comes up from in the west and sets down in the east

    The stars are out there shining but just where we can not say

    It’s different world now like night and day

    In the name of self defense we built bombs to prove a point

    And we’d drop them on our neighbors when their nose got out of joint

    To sell the same hamburger rain forests had to go

    Hell we don’t need no air to breathe but just don’t tell us no

    It’s a different world now without a doubt

    The raindrops fall to Heaven and the tides go rolling out

    The rivers flow like powdered milk and the wind blows with a wheeze

    It’s a different world now there are no trees

    My own feeling on money is spend it. Keep just enough in a bank to pay your bills at the end of the month.
    The money that you spend today, will cost more, tomorrow.
    When the currency exchange between dollars and other currencies disintegrates the price in dollars of everything you purchase will go up proportionately.

    So that item you pay $1 for today might cost $5 tomorrow.
    There is almost no way that savings can keep up with inflation.
    If you save money, get sick, then the money you have saved goes to the government. Then they enroll you in Medicaid. Not before they take everything you earn first.
    The entire system is designed to steal whatever you have gone out and earned with hard work. So stealing from Unsafety Boxes is only the next step along the line.

    If the Australian waiting time was reduced from seven years to three years, you would expect four years’ worth of money to come in at once. Four is seven minus three.
    If they collected over fifty years’ worth, that implies most of it was not dormant at all.

    Minimum wage raised for large Corporation employees but not small businesses. Reduced regulations and thus costs for small businesses but not large ones. A “BASE” FIXED TAX RATE for huge Corporations but lots of easy to understand “loopholes” for small businesses and regular WORKING citizens … but ONLY IF the loopholes induce productivity and benefit. This is too easy. Thousands … no … millions of easy to implement economy boosting, happiness increasing, life enhancing methods can be created … BUT … those whose greed kills their humanity stand in the way. Solution? …. Pray, visualize, imagine, meditate on, etc. in our millions.. billions … that fairness and equality dominate and those who are evil are punished. This isn’t airy-fairy stuff, scientific evidence exists in abundance that the consciousness of enough people focused can change events on huge scales. Do on-line searches on the subject before rejecting it. Seek the TRUTH, and it will set us ALL FREE.

      Stop feeling sorry for yourself for being broke. It’s called hard work, saving money and staying out of debt not the nonsense in your comment. The world does not owe you a living. When you feel better get off your mom’s couch and get a job.

    The guns are next…. Good luck with that. I think the U.S Gov will be stopped by a coup. All those that are opposed to the constitution will be killed or jailed. Depending on how they act during the take back over.The Military will side with the people and a new government with all newly elected officials will be established. United we stand divided we fall and we are falling hard right now. The United States of America. United under what? The constitution you dumb sh*ts!!!

    An example of dormant is a volcano that isn’t currently erupting.


    Matthew 25:27-28
    Living Bible (TLB)

    27 you should at least have put my money into the bank so I could have some interest.
    28 Take the money from this man and give it to the man with the $10,000.

    If your wealth is not drawing ‘interest’ for the Lord’s use…’s dormant =

    Money not earning interest but just setting there in a bank or some other coffin place…. is dormant.

    Hi micheal and ec bloggers,
    for most the bank is still the safest place to store your money.
    I’m leaving las vegas at the end of the month, and my destination is the oil play in North Dakota. I’ll let you know what the jobs scene is up there. my Intel is the housing is starting to catch up finally, and they’re looking at a total of ten thousand wells by the end of the decade. why they don’t tax the oil companies more I’ll never know fascism at work I guess.

    On one hand…. Governments are simply doing (on a very large scale) what individuals would do under similar circumstances.

    If I were broke (well, I AM broke! Just like nearly every government) – I’d search the seat cushions, check the soda dispensing machines, etc – especially around bars and restaurants – for any spare change I could come across. It’s no longer your change. You left it behind.

    Technically, it IS your money, because it’s the result of a transaction of a purchase you made. You paid $1.25 for the can of Coke. Your Coke cost $1.10. You are rightfully entitled to the remaining $.15. But you forgot to grab it from the coin dispenser. You left it behind, and I found it. Therefore, that 15 cents is now mine.

    Am I wrong in my logic?

    Rome’s collapse was probably due more to over-expansion coupled with an inability to collect enough revenues in the new territories to fund basic requirements.

    Tax collection was a nightmare in those days. Thats why many emperors allowed their armies to loot and pillage their way across the landscape.

    Another reason for virtual currencies. For example Bitcoin can’t be seized unless they have the keys, and in many cases the keys (or the pass phrase) are located only in the mind of the owner. This is one case where, if you are not prudent, when you die you take your money with you! 🙂

    Unbank yourself keep as little as possible in the bank. Use cash whenever you can just remember every swipe of your debit card is money in their pocket why fund the people who are screwing us.

    Here’s the HUGE problem with this story. It doesn’t explain what is the criteria for “unclaimed” other than “no contact”. What constitutes a contact? That is absolutely vital. I have an IRA I check out on line a few times a year. Is that a contact? Because If I log in one day and find a lifetime worth of savings stolen from me, someone is going to die. It’s as simple as that.
