Is your NYS unclaimed funds letter a scam: Your Stories

One viewer sent us a photo of an unclaimed property letter, not sure if it was a scam.

We reached out to the State Comptroller’s Office about it, and they have confirmed that the letter was legitimate.

There is no fee to reclaim funds, however, private companies are allowed to charge claimants up to a 15 percent finder’s fee.

Any concerns like this one, should be directed to the Comptroller's Office. 

If you have a question for the Your Stories team, give us a call at 315-446-9900 or email us at
