DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Delaware officials are warning residents postcards about unclaimed property are not from the state and should be ignored.
    
State escheator David Gregor said in an email that the postcards stamped "Unclaimed Property Notification" have been distributed in several states and one was reported in Delaware on Monday. He says the postcards tell recipients to call a toll-free number and provide personal information.
    
Gregor, whose office is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's abandoned property statute, says the postcards were not sent by any Delaware agency.

“Delaware has not sent these cards nor have they been sent on Delaware’s behalf,” Gregor said. “We would never ask an individual to provide personal information to a call-in number, and we would recommend anyone who receives these cards to remain cautious and to not respond in any way.”

Gregor says anyone who believes they have unclaimed property in Delaware should go to http://finance.delaware.gov/unclaimedproperty.shtml.
