Did you leave some money behind?

If you used to bank at WaMu, you may have left some cash behind.

The Washington Revenue Department says nearly $10 million deposited in Washington Mutual went unclaimed after the Seattle bank failed in 2008.

J.P. Morgan Chase received most of WaMu’s accounts, but inactive accounts were turned over to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The FDIC recently turned the funds over to the state.

The department has mailed claim forms to the last known addresses of anyone with more than $75 due. Names of anyone owed at least $25 are posted online here or here.
