Scam site says it'll help you collect unclaimed funds from state

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Ohio Department of Commerce says there is a fake website out there promising to help residents get unclaimed funds from the state.

The site says all they need is a fee, ranging from $12 to $30 dollars, to get people their cash -- but it's a scam.

The agency says people never have to pay anyone to collect any unclaimed funds.
