How Much? From Who?

Someone sent me the link to check for "unclaimed property" that might possibly be held by the State on my behalf. (You know, you hear about it all the time.) I hadn't checked in a number of years so I filled out the online form for the heck of it.
I found $100! And here's the weird part: It's a Men's Wearhouse gift certificate. They handle gift certificates?
Edit (15 minutes later): What the heck!!!! They sent me a claim form by email (already prepared) with an attachment setting forth the needed items for proof of verification. This is item #4: "Attach the original unredeemed gift certificate/card issued by the Reporting Company"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
