This is an ad that should get your attention.

It's not a scam. It's money owed by Natrona County and it needs to be claimed.

Those in Natrona County are owed nearly 16% of the $110 million in Unclaimed Property being held by the State of Wyoming.

It only takes about 2 minutes to search your name at to see if you are entitled to a share of the $17.53 million linked to a Natrona County address.

Do you have unclaimed property or money?

You might but you don't know it.

The video below, from the state of Wyoming, explains how you search for unclaimed property.

Use this link to begin your process and use this video as a how-to guide.

There are people ready to assist you by phone.

The State Treasurer's office is encouraging Wyoming residents to visit to see if any of the State's $106 million in unclaimed property is theirs.

Back in 2023, the Unclaimed Property Division of the Wyoming State Treasurer’s Office shattered the previous records, returning $10.64 million.

The office paid out using 9,342 checks issued over the 2022-2023 fiscal year representing a 31.8 percent increase over the previous record of $8.072 million.


“Our Unclaimed Property Fund keeps getting bigger and bigger, no matter how much money we return to its rightful owners,” Wyoming State Treasurer Curt Meier said. “To me that’s really eye-opening when you consider our payments to citizens of the Cowboy State are up more than 30 percent from the previous record.”  (Sweatwater Now).

At this point, you might be wondering where this unclaimed property and money is coming from.

This is money or property turned over when a business, agency, or governmental entity owes money, securities, and/or the contents of a safe deposit box. But they can't locate the owner.

When this happens the money is turned over to the state. The search then begins for the owner.

Vintage Wyoming Movie Posters

I love walking down the hallway of a modern movie theater and looking at the old posters of vintage movies.

That got me thinking about old Westerns based on Wyoming. How many of those posters are still around?

Many are, and many are for sale online, if you want to decorate your home, or even home theater, with classic and mostly forgotten movie posters.

Most of these films were made before the era of television. Hollywood was cranking out these things as fast as they could.

The plots, the scrips, the acting, directing, and editing were SO BAD, they were good.
