The biggest money scandals of the last decade

Espresso Logo By Jessica Wei of Espresso | Slide 1 of 26: The lives of billionaires aren’t relatable to most average people, and that’s never clearer than in the ways they attempt to protect sums of money beyond what most would even dare dream of amassing in their lifetime. Most people would be thrilled with a few million in the bank; these people would risk prison to protect sums far beyond their needs and desires. But to us, they sure are fun (and infuriating!) to read about. From a $2-billion paper trail to Vladimir Putin to a small-time Russian scammer trying to make it big in New York City, these are the most notable money scandals of the past decade. NOTE: All currency is expressed in U.S. Dollars.
