The $3 million in ol Socks’ Swiss bank account amounts to little more than pin money.
Just enough to buy a good cuppa joe while at the Olympics, or perhaps the cafe itself should the coffee be exceptional.
As for the account’s existence? We subscribe to the theory that the Mittster’s wealth is so vast he simply lost track of it. Or his people lost track of it. Same same. 1
- While the Swiss Bankers Association (GNOMES) has a list of accounts dormant since the end of World War II (May 9, 1945), most of those belong to Holocaust victims. However, the Swiss Banking Ombudsman is also available to assist other non-Swiss citizens who may have forgotten a million or two: he can be reached at – Schweizergasse 2, CH-8001 Zürich, Switzerland; +41-1-210-3720 (fax), +41-1-213-1460 (voice) – and will happily assist. Or you can go online and start your claim. ↩
