FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NUPD.com POSTS $700 MILLION UNCLAIMED MONEY UPDATE

 Leading unclaimed money Internet site integrates Florida’s 2.5 million records

Coral Gables, FL – August 3, 2001: The National Unclaimed Property Database©, NUPD.com, the Internet leader for reuniting unclaimed money to its rightful owners and heirs, announces the update of 2.5 million records of unclaimed money accounts valued at $700 million from the State of Florida. The #1 Internet resource and free search site for unclaimed money and property, NUPD.com provides easy, centralized access to over $35 billion of unclaimed money and property held by state and federal government agencies from across the United States.

NUPD.com, with 1.3 million registered members, ranks as the largest Internet resource and search site for unclaimed money and property. Visitors to NUPD.com simply sign-up (its free) then login to begin their searches for unclaimed money owed them, their family, neighbors, friends, their business and others. Additional site resources such as on-line help and agency contact information assist its members with their claim process.

Statistics show that one in eight Americans is owed unclaimed money or property such as forgotten savings or checking accounts, safe deposit boxes, stocks and bonds, insurance proceeds, utility deposits, gift certificates, cashiers checks, payroll checks, undeliverable IRS tax refunds, HUD/FHA insurance refunds, pension benefits and more.  When financial accounts lay dormant for a specified period of time, and the owner cannot be located, they are considered abandoned and turned over to the appropriate state agency for safekeeping until the rightful owner or heir comes forward to claim them.

“The impact the Internet, and specifically NUPD.com, has had on the public education and awareness of unclaimed property has been tremendous. Never before has the public had such ease of access to millions of unclaimed money and property accounts,” said Kim Usiak, President and CEO of Knowledge In Motion Inc. “With over $3 billion of dormant financial accounts reported annually, and one in eight Americans owed unclaimed money, NUPD.com is truly an invaluable resource for everyone.”
