And not Pumpkin Praline Popcorn!
I have to admit I was a doubter.
I had seen ads for "Unclaimed Property" for years but never thought to check to see if I had any. Frankly, I figured it was either something shady or a big waste of time.
For some reason, I clicked on the website one day and just typed in the name "Windham." I did it for all the states we've lived in. Much to my surprise, my name appeared twice in Alabama - once for AAA for less than $100 and one for Alphastaff (one of the companies I worked for) for more than $100.
I did a good bit of checking on this and didn't see that it was a hoax. I knew my chances were pretty slim of ever receiving money, but I went ahead and filed the 2 claims.
Then I got back a letter saying I had to send a copy of my driver's license and my social security number. That was nearly a deal breaker. Mike had not lived in Alabama long enough to know Young Boozer was a real name.
I called the number for the Alabama Treasury Department, and they assured me it was legit and that nothing would happen to my information.
So I did it and forgot about it.
A month or so later, I did a check on the filed claims, and I read that the information had been received and they were waiting on something.
I could check the progress of the claim every week or so when I thought about it. It was slow going,
