I am currently residing in Thailand and retired. In November 2019, I flew back to Greece, possessing the documents the bank required of me, to recover the funds I had left in their safe keeping. Now, I believe that that bank has lost, misled or made an error in my account to the sum of 2200 Euros.
Moreover, as I didn't use this bank account for a long time the bank decided to close the account without informing me. For me to reopen the account and access my funds I need to produce certain documents which are unreasonable regarding my current situation. I have to translate and notarize all the documents by a competent lawyer.
Having spoken with the bank officer who was very unsympathetic and intransigent, I realized that the only action I could take was to contact a lawyer. I was vulnerable, stressed, scared, and angry, and I agreed to give a lawyer there power of attorney to deal with my problem with the bank. The lawyer is not forthcoming and still hasn't informed me about his fees even though we agreed on specific conditions.
I realize now that the only way for me to solve this issue is to go and stay there for as long as necessary. Thus, I need people to fund and help me with my legal problem with this bank. This has taken a mental and physical toll on me as it has clouded my present and my future. People have told me to go back to teaching but because of my age (late 50's) and my current mental state I do not think it is possible.
In advance I would like to thank anyone for their concern and their help during this very difficult time for me. I feel ashamed asking for help but I do not see any other way.
Sincerely, Mr. Richard M.
