Three years ago, I searched the missingmoney website and was surprised to see an entry with my name.  While I was initially skeptical, after further research I determined it was for an expense reimbursement check from a former employer. I submitted the required documentation and received the funds promptly minus a very modest fee.   Friends have found forgotten security and utility deposits and university fee refunds via the website.
