Marshall Mathers, the state of Michigan has something of yours.
The rapper better known as Eminem may not be hurting for cash, but if he ever runs low, he can pick up the unclaimed property turned over by Michigan National Bank. The state Treasury Department lists Mathers on its unclaimed property Web site.
Eminem’s publicist, Dennis Dennehy, declined to comment.
The Treasury Department holds on to millions of dollars in forgotten bank accounts, uncashed paychecks, dividend payments and other property that have been sent to the state when a company can’t find the person owed the money or property.
It’s up to people to look on the Web site and make a claim.
“A lot of it is bank accounts; people moved and maybe forgot about them,” state treasury spokesman Caleb Buhs told The Detroit News. “If the account remains dormant for a year, the banks are legally obligated to turn it over to the state.
Other well-known names on the list include singer Aretha Franklin, Domino’s Pizza founder Thomas S. Monaghan and former Gov. John Engler.
Engler, owed property from Ameritech, is listed on the registry as “SEN MAJ LDR JOHN ENGLER” of Lansing. That means whatever is being held dates back to 1985-90, when Engler was Michigan Senate majority leader.
