Interior View of a Victor Lustig Money Box

Count Victor Lustig conned countless people with his money-box scams.

Whether his "marks" were passengers on luxury cruise liners, crossing the Atlantic between France and America, or people tempted in other circumstances (like an American sheriff), Lustig turned a swindle into cash for himself.

This image depicts the interior of a money box like Lustig used. Notice the real dollars inside the box, together with the blank paper. Lustig's scheme was to convince gullible people that his box could turn blank paper into real money.

Of course ... the money box could do no such thing.
