Maine is holding onto $12 million of other people's money and some of it could be yours. Here's how to find out. 

WGME 13 reports that the state has $12 million in unclaimed property. At the end of 2015, the State Treasurer received millions in unclaimed assets, money owed to people from third parties including former employers, banks and utilities.

Some of that money could be yours. This isn't a scam. It's real money owed to Mainers. You just have to claim it.
