    As most governments are going to great lengths to inform the public about unclaimed money they might be owed, their measures aren't strong enough to keep the growing pile of unclaimed money tamed. The various state governments have set up unclaimed money websites, where searches can be made for unclaimed money. Founder Bill McIntosh stated, "The states are doing a good job of reaching out to the public with the limited funding they have to work with. The big problem is that state unclaimed money searches will only reveal unclaimed money being held in that particular state." This was the reason that Bill created a website that allows people to search in one place and find money from all 50 states and federal databases.
