Unclaimed property advertising campaign sparks interest in West Virginia


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — A recent advertising campaign is sparking a large uptick in unclaimed property claims in West Virginia.

State Treasurer John Perdue's Unclaimed Property Division wrapped up its most recent campaign Friday.

Officials say the campaign led to increased phone and online activity from those seeking to see if they have unclaimed property in West Virginia.

The treasurer's office also made plans to hold another online auction of items left behind in safe deposit boxes or items seized in law enforcement arrests. The most recent auction runs until Oct. 23.
