The website, or is a legitimate website. is an online portal overseen by the Florida Department of Financial Services. If you believe you may be entitled to an unclaimed property then you can conduct the steps featured at FL Treasure Hunt to initiate a free claims process.

In order to prove an account belongs to you, each claim form will detail what documentation will be required to verify ownership of said property. Simply having the same name as that on an account does not establish entitlement and required documentation such as providing your identification alone may not be sufficient.

When filling out the documentation you may be asked for your Social Security Number, a past address or proof of your past connection or relation to the entity that reported the account to the Department.

According to, unacceptable documentation forms include hand written letters, letterhead and business cards, printouts from the Internet and telephone directories.
