Famous names on Mass. unclaimed property list

BOSTON (AP) -- New Kids on the Block, your check is ready.

The recently reunited band, former Red Sox player Nomar Garciaparra and celebrity chef Todd English are among 40,000 people, businesses and charities on Massachusetts' latest list of owners of abandoned property.

The list maintained by State Treasurer Tim Cahill's office includes bank and brokerage accounts and other assets that have been untouched for three years.

The treasurer's office says $800 in unclaimed stock and a $27 check are waiting for New Kids.

Garciaparra, who now plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers, can claim an uncashed check worth $121.40.

English has $1,239 in unclaimed assets.

The latest list has a combined total of $17 million in unclaimed assets, including six accounts worth more than $100,000 each.
