Some people are rich and famous, while some are rich and notorious. Here is a list of seven notorious criminals, who may be even famous for the astounding amount of wealth they have or had:
With more than $820 million in his kitty, Bernie Madoff is the criminal with hordes of wealth. Madoff is infamous for his Ponzi scheme, where he swindled people out with billions of dollars. Well, right now he is wasting all that money enjoying time in a security prison.
Who doesn’t know about the trial of OJ Simpson? The famous celebrity became a national villain, running the headlines for at least a year in newspapers and tabloids. Simpson had been charged for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. In the controversial judgement, he was only found responsible for wrongful death. Simpson estimated worth is over 2.5 million.
He wasn’t a killer, but he certainly was no less. Sean Penn, American actor and director, ex husband of pop star Madonna was found guilty of physical and verbal abuse. He is perhaps most infamous for his nine hour torture ordeal with Madonna, where he nearly killed her. His net worth is over 120 million.
Who leaves 12 million dollars to a dog? Well, Leona does! With a net worth of 2 billion, Leona is a criminal with sharp mind and wit. She married real estate mogul Harry Helmsley and both of them were vindicated for fraud and extortion. She even had to pay a fine of 7 million dollars, but then when you have 2 billions, you don’t really have to worry!
Do you want to know about a furniture dealer with 100 million dollars? Well, that is Al Capone. Capone was the boss of bosses, the most notorious mobster in American History. He earned all his money by gambling, stealing and bootlegging. He stayed at five star suites and lived in fortified mansions.
Amado Carillo Fuentes
Drug Dealers are definitely striking gold. Probably, that’s why Amando has over 25 billion dollars in his kitty. The leader of Juarez Cartel in Mexico, he was a notorious smuggler. He died while being operated during a plastic surgery so that he could escape police.
You have seen him in the movies- the evil South America drug lord. The head of cocaine cartel, he was one of the most powerful drug dealers and the once the seventh richest man in the world. With an estimated net worth of 30 billion dollars, he surely ruled them all.
