Who Stole Diana Dors Millions?

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Who stole Diana Dors’ Millions? I’ve just watched this fascinating programme on Channel 4, a true life story that wouldn’t be out of place in a Hollywood movie.
It’s about the English movie star Diana Dors, who ended up trawling the bingo halls and parlours for a pittance, before going bankrupt. Before she died, she handed her son a cryptic code, suggesting that ?2 million could be found if he could crack it. This year, while her friends (including Michael Winner and other famous old faces) scoffed at the suggestion of her having any money, the son found old bank statements and black books, showing that she had substantial funds that the taxman never knew about. He finally cracked the code, only to find it was only half of the total code – the other half belonged to her husband, who committed suicide in the 80’s. It’s certainly got people talking. So close, yet so far…
It led me to thinking – how much money is sitting in dormant accounts, waiting to be discovered? I’d settle for just a few thousand, I don’t want to appear greedy…
