Kathy & Karen, Thanks for this, AGAIN. After 10 years I was contacted by an estranged relative to collect on some obscure stock holding for a purported purpose. CAUTION TO ALL, anyone can say anything about an asset & purported use of it to get control of it. This reminder to follow up with credit agencies databases & to not pay anyone to obtain financial or other assets for you that are out there! FYI the stock transfer agents have been consolidating and are a huge help & resource for "unknown and lost" stock and other investment holdings. The IRS has an entire division handling estates and is a informed aid to these matters, especially when there is a dispute among heirs, etc. (they were for me). Don't forget the regulators of financial instruments, SIPC, SEC, etc. Keep up the excellent work! You all merit a trophy for your award winning work. VK
