For over 20 years unclaimed safe deposit boxes that have been abandoned and turned over have accumulated in the Auditor of State’s vault. As time goes on the prospect of the original owners or heirs coming forward to claim the property diminishes significantly. In order to free up more space and find new homes for the valuables and collectibles that are currently unused, the Auditor of State is launching an eBay auction program.
The original owners of the abandoned items sold through eBay will always be entitled to the proceeds of the sale, minus any applicable fees, upon submitting a valid claim to the Auditor of State.
All of the abandoned assets that are turned over to the Auditor of State’s Unclaimed Property division always
belong to the original owner(s) or their heirs.
The state never gains ownership of these assets and the original owner may claim the proceeds at any time in the future.
The Auditor’s office will hold new auctions on the last Friday of each month beginning January 27, 2012, and each auction will last 10 days. To view our current auctions, go to the ar.unclaimedproperty eBay page.
Interested bidders may sign up to receive email auction alerts by visiting the Auditor’s eNews sign up page.
Bidding is open to any registered user of eBay (a free service).
However, the Auditor of State, his employees and their immediate families are not eligible to bid on auction items.
The Auditor of State as administrator of the unclaimed property program is authorized to conduct a sale of safe deposit box properties under A.C.A. 18-28-212
