Steve Wynn, Gov. Brian Sandoval’s campaign among Nevadans with unclaimed property

Central Telephone owes Gov. Brian Sandoval’s campaign $500 in refunds from 2002.

Gingko Acquisition Corp. owes hotel tycoon Steve Wynn $69.30 in stocks or bonds from 2008.

NV Energy owes Sen. Harry Reid’s campaign $21.74 in refunds from 2009.

Those are among the 312,555 abandoned financial claims held by the Nevada state treasurer’s office. In total, the state has $650 million worth of unclaimed property.

The state collects and protects abandoned financial claims, including utility deposits, gift certificates or gas royalties. This June, the state will advertise the list of abandoned property to try to return it to the owner.

State Treasurer Kate Marshall said her office returns nearly 50 percent of all abandoned property that’s transferred to the state. Last year, the treasurer's office returned $35 million in property to its owner.
