Fraud

Four rich and famous people that ended up being poor

1. Nicolas Cage

Cage was not only one of Hollywood's highest-paid actors (he earned $40 million in 2009 alone), but he was also a major spender. He acquired a slew of properties, vehicles, and priceless memorabilia.


2. 50 Cent

50 Cent made his name as a rapper, but he has a thriving business enterprise that supplements his rap earnings. In 2008, during the depths of the crisis, his equities took a nosedive.


50 Cent owed $32.5 million in court settlements and back child support payments when he went bankrupt in 2015. Next year he became insolvent and declared himself


3. Jackie Chan

With stunts like sliding down a 21-story skyscraper untethered or fighting off foes with a toilet seat, Jackie Chan never ceases to amaze and amuse viewers.


However, he didn't become a Hollywood A-lister just because of his impressive boxing skills.


4.Bernard Bernie


Allen Stanford, the man in charge of the second-largest investor fraud case in US history, is well-known for his shady business practices and for defrauding over 18,000 people. Many of Stanford's victims, in contrast to those who lost money to Madoff, have yet to get recompense for the wrongs done to them.
