1. A Fake Boat Trip
In 2006, a man named Edouard de Montjoye took a group of tourists on a boat trip in the Mediterranean Sea. However, the trip was not what it seemed. De Montjoye was actually taking the tourists on a fake boat trip. He had rented a boat and hired a captain to take the tourists around for a day. However, the captain was not real and the boat was not seaworthy.
De Montjoye charged the tourists $5,000 for the trip. He made over $200,000 from the fake boat trip before he was caught.
2. A Family’s Lottery Win
