2003-03-12 08:00:18 AM  
gees! I havent found any of my friends in the list, yet.

It would be good if the list was sorted by decreasing amount.
2003-03-12 08:00:58 AM  
It's not even real money

2003-03-12 08:03:41 AM  
There's $2,700+ sitting in a name VERY close to mine. One digit in the first name is transposed, and I have a pretty uncommon name (growing up, our Surname was the only one in the phone book).

I'm gonna see if anybody else claims it. If not, I'll claim it and donate it to Farkistan relief efforts (read: more Boobies).
2003-03-12 08:12:20 AM  
Well, here's a game to delay actually doing something useful. Try to find as much money as you can on this site! Woo hoo!! I shall never get anything done.

$2700, eh? Let the hunt begin!
2003-03-12 08:12:41 AM  
damn... no free money for me today.

Vinegar Jones: Don't celebrate too quickly. Yesterday I got my Boobies and 100+ comments before they scooped it away to that great garbage pail in the server. Can't really blame them apparently it was a repeat repaet repeat ...
2003-03-12 08:22:45 AM  
Wow. Grandad left a few hundred bucks lying around?

That's was not like him at all!
2003-03-12 08:26:28 AM  
Right, that's enough of this for me.
2003-03-12 08:26:51 AM  
Yeah but even if they take it away. I still got that coveted 1 posted in my profile!!!WooHoo!!
2003-03-12 08:27:37 AM  
Damn, Jorg, how'd you find that one?

Here's a question for debate: is it ethical to claim funds that you likely could, but that you know aren't yours?

Example: funds have been sitting idle since June '89. I'm pretty sure they're not mine. Should I claim them?
2003-03-12 08:33:29 AM  
You could'nt you'd need the matiching S.I.N. to claim them or adequate legal evidence that it's yours.
2003-03-12 08:34:00 AM  
Dogfather_jr: Damn, Jorg, how'd you find that one?

If I tell you, everyone will know! Which doesn't matter as I got bored with trying to find other people's money that I can't have. :) I searched a few common names, such as Jones, then I noticed a couple of trust entries and thought, "Trusts have lots of money." So I started searching on "trust" and came across that one. Found several in the $7,000-10,000K range as well.
2003-03-12 08:40:11 AM  
I keep getting a "File . Unspecified error " whenever I try and search. poo.
2003-03-12 08:41:19 AM  
Vinegar Jones: Sorry to be such a wet blanket but if they remove the posting, they also will remove the "1 posted". Better take a snapshot of it while it's there.
2003-03-12 08:46:45 AM

Apparently not. All you have to do is fill out the claim form and sign it. The bank will confirm the signature to the Bank of Canada. If the bank does not confimr your signature, and you can't provide documentation, then all you have to do is
send the Payment Authorization form you have received from the financial institution along with a note explaining your situation
2003-03-12 08:52:52 AM  
Hmmm. VinegarJones got his "1 posted" this week. I got my "1 posted" this week. VinegarJones got married June 15, 2002. I got married June 15, 2002. However, I do not have any pins in my jaw. Yet.
2003-03-12 09:13:00 AM  
Jorg I can't help with the pins. But I'll buy you some pickles!!!MMMMMMMM!!!!

I got married in a greenhouse. Seriously!

I'm not retarded enough to have any unclaimed money.
2003-03-12 10:15:35 AM  
It's working fine for me. Of course it's old. But it's new to Fark.

VinegarJones - isn't Articles: 1 posted reward enough today? *lol*

2003-03-12 03:41:10 PM  
Dominos may deliver across 4 provinces. But I bet you don't get the 30 minutes or free deal.
2003-03-12 07:27:11 PM
