It must be a Nevada quirk in the law. Direct deposit at Chase bank (NY) satisfies all requirements even free checking and is definitely considered activity.

Just received a similar letter from our REIT. We had to call them and let them know we were still at the same address. That was it. I thought the letter was a scam at first, and I called the REIT office to ask, "Hey, is this legit? Looks like a scam. Why do you want my SSN via the mail?"

20 seconds on the phone and it was cleared up. Apparently, I need to pester my REIT more often. And yes, it's been almost two years since the last time I contacted them.

I would still look up the contact info on any similar letter that comes in the mail. Call the known number instead of the number on the letter. There have been way too many data breaches for my liking lately. Having been the victim of identity theft a few times already, I always err on the side of caution. I can't stand cleaning up after an identity theft attempt.

People in a similar boat should consider a security freeze with the credit monitoring companies. I have mine locked for life. I don't need any new lines of credit. Nor will I, ever. That's one less thing to worry about.

Given that storage lockers get to auction off items, why should safety deposit boxes be different?

With regards to checks and refunds, these days with email there really isn't much of an excuse since an email address will tend to follow someone for life.

What happens with items ultimately? Auctions?
The state is interfering because it's generally in people's best interests for there to be a single source to look to for lost/unclaimed property. It's one of the original Consumer Protection laws, and they are in place in every one of the states plus D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Also several provinces in Canada. Yes, I could contact every business I've every dealt with to find out if they've every sent me a refund that I never cashed. Or, you know, not.

Safe Deposit boxes typically hold small valuables, sensitive documents, valuable documents or nothing at all. Storage lockers hold large junk.
