Celebrities' unclaimed money

Barack Obama. Mark Zuckerberg. Lindsay Lohan. These celebrities are missing out on hundreds -- and in some cases, thousands -- of dollars in paychecks, stocks and other payments that have been forfeited to the states.

Barack Obama is missing: $700

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.
