You could be receiving an unexpected check from Louisiana's Treasury Department shortly, if not already.
Treasurer John Schroeder wants to assure the recipients it's "not a scam," but rather the second phase of a project to return unclaimed property money to individuals.
He says the some 44,000 checks totaling more than $4 million, with a maximum payment of $1,500, covers five years of unclaimed property records.
The first phase of the project last October doled out $15 million to 85,000 residents.
