Many years ago, I rented a P.O. box. I no longer have anything with the address on it, all I know is the address itself.
I bought a house, and then a few years later walked away from it because the roof was falling apart. Got married, had kids, sick child medical bills piled up and we had to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The house ended up selling at a tax deed sale. Even after the bankruptcy, my name was still attached to the property.
A lawsuit to quiet the title of that property was served to me last year I believe, which I let lapse because I didn't want to deal with the house at all. After the court response quieting the title, I start getting letters from a bunch of companies stating they found money that belonged to me, and that the would offer me $X for them to get it for me. I believe I was noticed of a refund of the difference.
The form DFS-UP-106 states, to claim the funds, that I have to submit my driver's license and some proof, like correspondence or a bill, that contains my name and the address on the form.
First off, is this legal? I would like the unclaimed funds if I can claim them legally;
If it is, while I don't have a document showing my name and the P.O. box it came from, but these people that contacted me by mail seem to have a way to do it, so how could I find some proof of me leasing/renting that PO Box? I'm going to to try calling or visiting that branch to see if they have records, but if that doesn't work, what course of action should I take?
EDIT: I found paperwork on this so I guess I would like other users to chime in on the legality of accepting these funds in light of having a bankruptcy on record.
EDIT I have been listing the.com address instead of the.org address by mistake. I've contacted my bankruptcy lawyer, and I will post the results when I hear them.
