Expanding on initial patch article today, the State of New Jersey has more than $4.5 billion waiting to be claimed, and some of it could be owed to you.

From the Editor: I typed in my name and found about 30 matches, but unfortunate none of the listings were for me so without the windfall of cash I’ll continue to be your editor on this site.
