Bill’s unclaimed wealth

Astute reader Stephen Wallingford Price pointed me to the state Department of Revenue’s online register of unclaimed property.

It says the state has some money belonging to a certain William H. Gates of Medina — a Qwest rebate worth between $50 and $100.

Wallingford cc’d me on an e-mail he sent to Bill, letting him know about the windfall.

“I know you must be pretty busy, and probably don’t have time to do things like this yourself,” he wrote. “Heck, you probably even have people on your staff who are too busy to mess around with piddley stuff like hunting down every little nickel and dime you might have coming to you. But, hey, maybe some kid in Africa or Albania or Elbonia could use this moolah, instead of having it sitting in limbo somewhere in Olympia.”

The site also shows that Microsoft has a list of unclaimed monies being held by the state. Is the company waiting for a slow quarter to collect?

Average folk can also enter their names to see if they have any money floating around.
