State Treasurer John Perdue says his office's latest unclaimed property advertisement has triggered a strong response.
Officials say 1,800 electronic claims were filed in the six weeks leading up to April 29. That compares with 530 claims filed in the month before the ads came out.
Perdue says the numbers show how effective the ads are.
Examples of unclaimed property include utility deposits, paychecks and uncashed stock dividends.
Claims may be filed at www.wvtreasury.com or by calling 642-8687.
