Looking at just some of the net worths that these criminals have managed to attain throughout their "careers", it really makes one question themselves what all the college studying is for. At the same time, all of these convicted criminals were eventually caught, having honestly thought that running multiple illegal businesses all around the world wouldn't catch up to them in the long run. Despite the fact that the majority of these criminals went on to lose their fortune (and their fame), it is quite surprising to see just how much they were able to make before being incarcerated. Doing something similar to what these criminals have done in their past may get you rich quick, but consider the consequences beforehand, as some of them have faced sentences of up to 30 years. All in all, is it worth it in the end? See below for 12 criminals with net worths that will certainly shock you!

He was relatively known to have made up to $5 million every single day — some days, Pablo would see up to $10 million, depending on how fast things were being shipped to different states. All in all, Pablo’s net worth is definitely one of the most impressive sums you’ll have ever heard of: $30 BILLION! And that was all through the work of selling, shipping and buying drugs.
