I heard a great article on the BBC news this morning. This is for UK residents only. There is a free to use website where you can enter your personal information and itw ill search to find out if you have any money in bank accounts that you have forgotten about. This means that perhaps if a relative opened an account for you and did not tell you or if you have so many accounts you have forgotten about one, you may find some money that is yours. It is worth a try.... the website is http://www.mylostaccount.org.uk.
