  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) December 19, 2008 - Wondering what you can do for Christmas? You could get your picture taken with Santa at the Hyde Park Village, or you could find a box under the Christmas tree filled with money.

    Edward Palonek from foundmoney says, Tampa Florida residents have approximately $21,000,000 dollars in unclaimed money that remain to be claimed. Some of this money is in the form of dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. Unclaimed Property also includes tangible property such as jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles, from safe deposit boxes.

    “With just 71,220 families in Tampa, the chances of finding money are pretty good”, says Palonek. It appears that half of these families could have some unclaimed money. This works out to be roughly a $368 per family. Some Tampa residents have more money then others.

    Mr Palonek, founder of, helps to reunite people with their lost or forgotten money and was the first company on the Internet do so. Foundmoney, a company started in 1994, specializes in unclaimed money and has reunited thousands of people with their lost and forgotten money.

    $35,818 Hellen Ernst
    $25,000 Gregory Gudda
