It's an age-old question: Does Crime Pay?
We all have a fascination with heists and the bigger the better. Movies like The Italian Job and Ocean’s Eleven (and Twelve and Thirteen) have us rooting for the criminals who have planned very clever and created elaborate schemes to get their hands on millions of dollars.
When it happens in real life, we are happy to see justice done and for the bad guys to get caught.
Some of the greatest heists on record have been worth millions of dollars to sneaky criminals. Those big bucks lead to a lot of temptation, with people plotting different ways to get their hands on it. But unless you have a team of Hollywood screenwriters planning the job, the chances of getting away with all that cash are pretty slim according to an infographic.
Some criminals get away with a big score, but most learn the hard lesson that crime really doesn’t pay.
