Famous/Infamous White Collar Crooks

|This is another take on the September Quiz Challenge theme. Obviously, it is not part of the Challenge, but it shares the same concept.|
The way we handle "White Collar" crime in this country is often a crime of its own. A poor person gets caught selling drugs or stealing, and goes away for a long time. Nothing is wrong with that. "Do the Crime, Do the Time" is as it should be. But if you rip off hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of people by plundering their pension fund, losing their investments, manipulating stocks, bonds, etc., you shouldn't walk away scot-free. However, getting caught normally means you get tapped on the hand with a ruler or flyswatter. If your really bad, you go to Club Fed for a couple years, then retire to live off the ill-gotten gains you have safely hid off-shore in British banks in the Cayman Islands. This quiz looks at some of the bigger white collar crooks, a couple of whom actually even received sizable penalties.
