Crime doesn’t pay. Says who? If you ask Insider Monkey, it pays off rather well in American dollars. Check out the list of 10 most profitable crimes to commit!
Money makes the world go round, and the world of crime is no exception to that rule. Surely you don’t think all those criminal acts would be happening just because someone feels like it? No, we’re talking big bucks here. Despite the fact that some people turned to crime because the very nature of it appealed to them, the main motive behind all that is the same as with any honest job – getting those green bills. However, those who start thinking how to start a life of crime haven’t become rich the regular way usually due to, what they would like to call, “some circumstances.”
By the way, the profits in this kind of business are not measured by millions, but rather billions of green bills. Isn’t that amazing (in so many wrong ways)? Also, it can’t really be said that tax is properly paid here, so perhaps the situation would’ve been different if they were to report to the IRS for every single transaction they make (makes you a bit jealous, doesn’t it?). Still, these are highly risky jobs, and that means often risking your own life, not the company’s success. The figures given represent the annual revenue for each activity. They’re all versatile, and even if you can guess one or two, you’ll be in for a few surprises. Naturally, there is a lot of theft and smuggling involved, and you’ll see which exact merchandise is the most demanded and lucrative on the market.
So, if you wish to see who’s getting richer and richer every day and not paying taxes, check out 10 most profitable crimes to commit!
