Request #RT-12809
I am requesting a list of checks issued by the City of Oakland since January 1, 2010 that remain uncashed and are now over six months old and considered stale-dated / outstanding and in the amount of $500.00 or greater. I understand that the data provided will pertain only to vendors, businesses, agencies, etc. and not to private citizens. Preferably I would like to obtain the list via e-mail attachment in the Excel spreadsheet format. If possible I would like the list to include the payee name, last known address, amount of check, check number, and date of check. In order to minimize the work on your end, if a similar report already exists that contains more or less information, that would be fine. Thank you very much for your assistance and please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello, we apologize for not responding to this request sooner. We have released the list of stale-dated checks because it is a public document, but please note that it is not legal to enter into a contract with a property owner to locate, deliver, recover, or assist in the recovery of property that is pending transfer from the business to the State Controller’s Office (SCO). Legally, investigators may only enter into a contract to assist a property owner once the property is transferred to the SCO and the SCO has published a notice in a newspaper of general circulation. We have not yet escheated any of these funds to the state, but are finalizing processes to begin doing so in the immediate future. We do not have any unclaimed funds in the form of property tax overpayments or Cash Deposits/Performance Bonds/Cash Securities/Escrow Information.
