After years of getting letters irregularly from legal entities pursuing a settlement from Global Crossing, yesterday I got a check in the mail for $15.10

All I got was a tax writeoff when they went bankrupt...
But now you're making me wonder if I didn't get some letters or something - I think I did move after they went bankrupt. can't remember when the stock became truly worthless.

I'm still annoyed at myself for not "selling" the few shares I had to the broker for $1 so that I could have claimed the loss in an earlier tax year.
