Unclaimed property in Florida has recently hit the $1.6 Billion mark and the money and items flowing into the state’s Treasury show no signs of slowing.

With hardly anyone stepping forward, officials are worried that Florida unclaimed property could grow to be completely unmanageable in the near future.
