Q: I found my name online with unclaimed money from the state comptroller of NY reported by Coach Inc and it's for goods..
And services not received or paid for. The year it was first reported was 2008 and the next time was 2018. The name and address on the unclaimed money is as follows... It's more than $20. I believe it's about contracts and agreements lawyers in Queens NY. Can you please help me determine what these goods and services are for and who I need to contact and why?
A: If you do this through a law firm, they will probably charge legal fees for their services. You could look into whether you could handle the matter on your own without paying anyone. The Office of the State Comptroller has contact information - you could call or write to them to ask about basic information involving any refund and what steps you'd need to take to request your money. Good luck
A: Addendum - Although the Comptroller's Office could advise you on what steps to take to request your money, they are not likely to have details on the second part of your question (what the goods and services are for). That's something the issuer of the check might have more information on. Good luck
Jonathan R. Ratchik agrees with this answer
A: The goods and services giving rise to your claim for unclaimed money are arguably irrelevant. Nor will the Office of the New York State Comptroller have such information. If you are entitled to the money, put in a claim for it. Here's something I found online which you might find helpful, https://www.osc.state.ny.us/unclaimed-funds/claimants/claims-individuals
