Celebrities owed money from Mass. unclaimed funds list

There are quite a few sports stars and celebrities included in the state's semiannual update of a list detailing people owed money from forgotten bank accounts, abandoned safe-deposit boxes, and checks marked "return to sender."

Under state law, businesses must turn over to the treasurer's office the balance of any customer account that remains inactive for three years if they send a letter to the last address they have on file and cannot find the owner.

Here are some of the big names who are still owed money, and others who were paid the money from the fund in previous years.
