A few days ago I got a call from an aunt on my dad’s side who said someone contacted her about a $75 refund from AT&T that he never collected. She said she tried to get it but couldn’t, but I could since I’m his son. I checked out California’s unclaimed property database on the State Controller’s Website and sure enough there it is.
Now he died in 2000. Just like there are statutes of limitation on debt collection, I always thought there were limits on how long a company would hold on to a refund. Isn’t 14 years an awfully long time to still be offering it?
