Okay. So what they got to do with my investments?
Assume, you bought some physical shares long back and forgot about them, there have been change of address and all, so you no more get any dividends or letters from the company. Where do you think the unclaimed dividends and shares go? Right, the company has it. They had it until now, although the company has no right on the dividends amount in spite of it being unclaimed, but there is an old employee who held an eye on this and knew you were not claiming the dividends, and he knew the right places to ping to fraudulently claim this unclaimed dividends in his account.
Government soon realised this and they incorporated a Fund which holds all of this unclaimed and unpaid investments. If any investor remembers their investment anytime later they don’t have to face lame responses from the companies, they have an authority to go to.
