5 Most Notorious And Richest Criminals In The World (With Pictures)

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 5 criminals with net worths that will certainly shock you!

5. Griselda Blanco: $2 billion

While the men were known to have ruled the drug business at the time, Griselda Blanco clearly wanted in, hoping that she could also change her living habits for the better. Having grown up in a poor household, one can only imagine how Griselda must have felt when she had $2 billion in her bank account — this evidently gave her the freedom to do whatever she wanted. Her affiliation with other drug bosses led to her orders of having 200 people killed in the process. She might have been a woman, but she thought and acted just like the fellas.

4. Khun Sa: $5 billion

Who would’ve thought that the leader of the Shan United Army, who trained hundreds of his soldiers during the Chinese Civil War, would trade it in so that he can become another criminal in the drug business? Khun Sa’s situation was a little different since he already had a substantial income — not to forget that he was leading an army of people; giving them the instructions and orders. Eventually though, Khun had a helping hand in selling the increasingly popular heroin substance in the streets of New York during the 1970s and all the way up to the ‘90s. He had made $5 billion by then.

3. The Ochoa Brothers: $6 billion

When the job as a cattle breeder didn’t work out as planned, the Ochoa brothers needed a new plan to make a significant amount of income. Cattle breeding most certainly wasn’t going to keep these three men happy, which would explain why they eventually decided to start their own business in the field of cocaine and heroin, selling the substance to anybody who was interested. Throughout their time as three of the most profitable drug lords in the United States, the Ochoa brothers made significant connections that would help them make a total net worth of $6 billion.

2. Dawood Ibrahim: $6.7 billion

What made Dawood Ibrahim such a significant figure in the drug business wasn’t that he had one of the largest incomes one had ever seen at the time, but more so for his connections with the likes of Al-Qaeda. Dawood wasn’t a man people could mess with — having built up a reputation for being a “no-nonsense” type of man, Kaskar formed the largest drug dealing group that India had ever seen at the time. His wise moves and smart business decisions ultimately led him to stagger up a $6.7 billion net worth.

1. Pablo Escobar: $30 billion

Without a doubt the biggest drug lord of all time, Pablo Escobar was running multiple organizations in the illegal field all across the world, making him one of the most respected figure of his time. 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.
