Even the President of the United States can lose track of some cash.
Three cashier's checks, one for $250 in the name of "Barack Obama" and two adding up to $450 in the name of his presidential campaigns, were turned over to the state of California by First Republic Bank and Bank of America after several years of inactivity, according to listings in the state's unclaimed property database.
Bank of America is set to turn over the proceeds of several other cashier checks listed under "Obama for America" later this year if the funds aren't claimed.
California's $6.1 billion haul of unclaimed property includes a sack of diamonds, nearly 20 pounds of gold bars -- and a can of sardines.
