Examples of Items They Sell
Most of the vehicles were purchased new and driven by government employees for official purposes. They are sold when they reach replacement age and/or mileage limitations. Used government vehicles are one of the best buys in the marketplace
today. The vehicles are well maintained, have relatively low age and mileage and have desired features like automatic
transmission, air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. They also come in attractive body styles and a variety of
Stories about $100 yachts - or exotic cars sold for little or nothing - are pure fiction. GSA expects to receive a fair market price, and every item has an undisclosed minimum price. Your tax dollars paid for these items when they were new, and GSA expects to receive the best possible return on your tax dollar when they are sold.
GSA conducts sealed bid, auction, spot bid and fixed price sales. No preference is given to individuals or groups, including veterans, senior citizens or religious organizations.
Sealed Bid - They sell by sealed bid when the sale items are in scattered locations. For a sealed bid sale, they make an
"Invitation for Bid" or IFB - Available to prospective buyers through the mail, by FAX on Demand or via Internet. The IFB contains item descriptions, sale terms and conditions, item locations and inspection times and a bid form. If you decide to bid, you will complete the bid form and mail it to the address shown in the IFB. They must receive your bid by the opening date and time indicated on the IFB. Late bids are not accepted under any circumstances. They open all bids publicly.
Auction - They hold an auction when they have a large number of items for sale in one location. Many of their car and truck sales are auctions. They use traditional auction methods. Prospective bidders will receive descriptions, bidding instructions, and an opportunity to inspect the merchandise ahead of time or on the day of sale. Many of their sales are conducted by commercial auction companies under contract with GSA.
GSA Auctions® - Online auction sales offer web-enabled auctions, a wide variety of personal property, electronic bidding, bids by proxy, and instant feedback. Visit their Government Site for Auctions at GSA Auctions®. for item descriptions and images of items for sale.
Spot Bid - A spot bid sale is similar to a "silent auction," with bids written down rather than voiced. Property is offered item by item and awarded to the highest bidders. Bidders may bid only once per item, unless the item is re-offered.
Fixed-Price Sale - At fixed-price sales (also referred to as "Retail"), we post the selling prices on the property and sell items on a first-come basis.

The Adopt a Horse program is aimed at keeping wild herds in the West at manageable levels, and allows individuals around the country to purchase a wild horse for $125. You must be 18 years old and have adequate facilities for the horse (fenced area and shelter). Federal protection and a lack of natural predators have resulted in thriving wild horse and burro populations that grow in number each year. The BLM monitors rangelands and wild horse and burro herds to determine the number of animals, including livestock and wildlife, that the land can support. Each year, the BLM gathers excess wild horses and burros from areas where vegetation and water could become scarce if too many animals use the area. After caring for an animal for one year, the adopter is eligible to receive title, or ownership, from the Federal Government.

Make $2,000 in 45 minutes. That's what the author, Mary Ann Martello, did when she searched state databases looking for old forgotten utility deposits and bank accounts set up by grandparents. Every state has an office that collects money in that state that has been abandoned, forgotten, or left unclaimed, including:
The money could be a savings account that grandma set up for you when you were born. Or it could be a Christmas fund Great Aunt Rose contributed to before she passed away. Your father may have even had a safe deposit box he never told you existed.
According to reports, state agencies across the U.S. May be holding over $8 billion dollars in abandoned money. Although the rules vary from state to state, generally after two or more years without activity on an account (no deposits or withdrawals),the bank will try to contact you. If their efforts fail, the property is considered abandoned and transferred to the state of your last known address.
To locate funds, contact the unclaimed property office in the state (usually part of the state treasurer's department) where you or your benefactors have lived or conducted business. Most state agencies have websites, and many have searchable databases. You can contact the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, P.O. Box 7156, Bismarck, ND 58507; www.unclaimed.org Not only does the website give you a listing of state offices, it also links you to those that have existing websites. A listing of state Unclaimed Property Offices is listed at the end of this section.
What happens if the company you've worked for private-sector pension plan runs out of money before you've gotten your fair share? Did you work some place twenty years ago that is no longer in business? What about an old pension fund that was in financial trouble? Don't give up. The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) is a federal agency that insures that you will receive your benefit up to the limits of the law. You can also search the website by name, company worked for, or by state where the company is/was headquartered to see if there is a pension that you are owed. For the 26,000 people still missing, individual benefits range from $1 up to $264,548 and average about $3,675. The states with the most missing pension participants and money to be claimed are: New York (5,436/$23.55 million), California (2,929/$5.85 million), Texas (1,747/$5.32 million), New Jersey (1,388/$5.30 million ) and Pennsylvania (1,321/$4.28 million). To learn more contact Pension Benefit Guaranty corporation, 1200 K St., NW, Washington, DC 20005; 800-400-7242; www.pbgc.gov
If you ever purchased a home using a HUD/FHA insured mortgage, you may be eligible for a refund on part of your insurance premium or a share of the earnings. There are certain requirements you have to meet. If you are unsure whether your loan was FHA, you can call HUD on 1-(800) 697-6967 and provide your name and property address, or you may contact us at email@example.com. You can also search online at http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/comp/refunds/index.cfm
Beware of people (known as "tracers") offering to help you collect your refund for a fee. You do not need to hire someone to collect your money. You can obtain your refund directly from HUD for free. For more information, contact U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, P.O. Box 23699, Washington, DC 20026; 800-697-6967.
When you move or are away for a time, checks in the mail sometimes go missing. If you feel you are owed any missing money contact the following agencies:
Internal Revenue Service: The IRS has a new service where you can track your refund check at http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96596,00.html You must enter your name, social security number, and exact amount of refund. If you think you are missing a check from a previous year, you can call 800-829-1040 and talk with an IRS representative. An average refund of $963 is waiting for 95,746 taxpayers whose refund checks have been returned to the Internal Revenue Service as undeliverable. The checks, worth a total of $92.2 million, can be claimed as soon as their owners update their addresses with the IRS. In some cases, a taxpayer has more than one check waiting.
State Tax Agencies: Your state may also be holding a check of yours that they could not deliver. Contact your state Department of Revenue to find out whether they owe you any money. To locate the correct office check online http://www.taxsites.com/agencies.html
Social Security: Social Security Administration pays benefits to more than 53 million people. 90% of married couples and 88% of non-married persons aged 65 or older receive benefits. The average check per person is close to $1,000. If you are missing a check, you must call Social Security at 800-772-1213 and a representative will assist you.
Veterans Benefits: The same deal holds true with the Department of Veterans Affairs. If you are missing a check, you must call the Veterans Administration at 800-827-1000 and a representative will assist you.
The government has been very successful at collecting child support money from deadbeat spouses' tax returns and other sources, but families are not getting this money. The government is sitting on it waiting for custodial parents to call. The government likes this money because it generates over $50 million in interest and income. For the national office contact Office of Child Support Enforcement, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, DC 20447; 202-401-9383; www.acf.dhhs.gov/programs/cse
We are not talking about $2 cash back from scratch cards. Last fiscal year $27 Million went unclaimed in the California Lottery. Many states have close to $500,000 in unclaimed winnings that are due to expire soon unless people step up to claim them. What happens to the unclaimed winnings? It varies state to state, as some states just recycle the money back into the lottery and some give a percentage to state organizations the lottery supports. At the following lottery websites you can search by game and date of ticket purchased to see the winning numbers, and some states even have special pages set up for unclaimed winners. Who knows- you could be holding a $200,000 ticket!

As we said at the beginning, your state keeps money that may belong to you. Each year, due to death, inadvertence or forgetfulness, more than 200,000 people and organizations lose track of monies, rights to monies, and intangible property in just the state of Ohio. Several million citizens across the United States are in the same boat!
Common sources of unclaimed funds include: $ dormant savings and checking accounts$ unpaid insurance policies$ underlying shares of stock$ unreturned rent and utility deposits$ forgotten layaway deposits$ credit memos$ unclaimed wages or commissions$ securities$ undelivered and uncashed stock dividends$ credit balances$ uncashed checks$ intangible contents of safe deposit boxes Ohio has more than 2.6 million accounts worth over $700 million in its custody, and its diligent efforts to locate missing owners and reunite them with their lost assets has been successful year after year. Most states have similar search databases, like Ohio, where you can search by name. According to the information from the state of California, "The State of California is holding more than $5.1 billion in Unclaimed Property. Last year, more than 328,000 accounts were returned, and the average amount received was almost $900! There are 8.2 million accounts, so there is a good chance that you, a friend or family member has unclaimed property."
Find states you resided in and go hunting for cash!
