Top 10 biggest bank heists of all time

Hello everyone, thank you for joining the Prophets of Success, a channel where the most successful people come to up their game.

In this video Prophets of Success will be sharing with you the stories of some real life bank heists.

Before we embark on this enthralling journey together, be sure to subscribe to Prophets of Success and hit the bell icon for updates on more awesome videos

Done?

Lets get straight into it.

10- The Great Train Robbery

In 1963, a train was en route from Glasgow to Buckinghamshire in the UK when the train suddenly came to a halt at a remote location.

The traffic signals indicated that the train driver should stop the train.

But little did the train driver know the signals had been rigged by a gang of 15 robbers.

As soon as the train came to a stop, the robbers entered the train and looted over $4.1 million from the Royal Mail train carriage which carried high-valued packages including the mother of all loot……  cash.

It was considered one of the most strategically executed robberies of the time and subsequently found itself into the plots of many action-based movies in the years to follow.

If you are interested in learning more about The Great Train Robbery we highly recommend this book, “The Great Train Robbery

9- Dunbar Robbery

This robbery took place with the help of the safety inspector of the company himself.

In 1997, the regional safety inspector of Dunbar gathered a group of 5 friends and strategically planned to ambush the security guards at a stocked cash drop vault.

The group was able to flee away with $18.9 million cash and although they were arrested shortly afterward, the money was never recovered.

8- Northern Bank

It was a quiet night in Belfast in 2004 as the bank managers of Northern Bank planned for their day ahead while at home with their families.

Suddenly, a men dressed in police uniforms turned up at their doorstep and made their way into their houses.

As soon as they were in, it was clear they were not police officers as they held the families at gunpoint and made their demands.

The next day the managers were allowed to return to work while their families were held at gunpoint in the custody of the robbers.

Towards the end of the working day, these managers let in the robbers into the Northern Bank where they succeeded in acquiring $41 million.

After their mission was accomplished, the robbers let their co-conspirators know and they left the managers’ families unharmed as promised.

7- Brink’s Mat Robbery

Heathrow Airport was functioning at its normal capacity when it was suddenly taken by a storm as a group of robbers broke in into the Brink’s Mat warehouse.

The gang forced entry and stole possessions worth over $41 million in November 1983, an amount worth many times that today.

The guard on the watch-out was involved in this heist and escaped with the burglars.

The police were on the look-out immediately and were successful in arresting them but the money was never heard of again.

6- British Bank

Yet another British burglary on our list.

In 1976, when the Civil war in Lebanon was at its peak, a gang associated with the Palestinian Liberation Organization stormed through the bank’s walls and cracked open the vault with the help of experienced locksmiths.

The result was rewarding for them. The gang walked away with $50 million worth of jewels, cash, stocks, and gold.

Quite a day for them, don’t you think?

5- Knightsbridge Vault Robbery

The “Professor” of real-life bank heists, Valerio Vicci had a reputation for bank-robbing throughout England.

He had committed over 50 robberies in his career before this one and had never once been caught.

In 1987, he decided to do it all over again.

He entered the bank as a citizen wanting to open a safety deposit box and with the help of his armed accomplices was able to disarm the manager and his security team and leave with $62 million.


4 -Banco Central Burglary

 

This particular heist took place in Fortaleza, Brazil in 2005.

The way the gang went about this robbery was inspirational for burglars for decades to come.

Firstly, they rented a commercial property in the heart of the city by posing themselves as landscapers.

After that, they built a 256-foot tunnel to a position beneath the bank and managed to steal $70 million.

3- Hatton Garden

Perhaps the largest burglary in the English history, the heist at London’s Hatton Garden in April 2015 resulted in a loss of $252 million from the vault.

Unsurprisingly, this stunt was pulled off by close coordination by a group of 6 professional burglars who were later caught and charged for their crime.

Even so, this heist stands as one of the most significant ones in the history of England.

2- Dar Es Salaam

Now we will talk about a burglary in a region that has been defined as the most famous war zone in movies globally – Baghdad.

Allegedly, the bank was robbed by the military roaming the streets of Iraq in those times to keep the situation secure and safe for its residents.

Of course, they did not think of that while taking away $282 million of public cash from the bank, and since they were in charge of handling things such as criminal investigations, there was no investigation of any sort whatsoever.

1- Central Bank of Iraq Robbery

The biggest heist in the history of mankind took place in Baghdad in 2003 when Saddam Hussein himself ordered the execution of the heist a few days before the Americans invaded the country.

Saddam moved this money through his son to various locations to avoid traceability but failed in doing so effectively.

Out of the $920 million looted, over $600 million was recovered by the Americans as they invaded one of Saddam’s property during a raid.

The heist, however, marks itself as one of the biggest in history

Hey Prophets you stayed until the end and that can only mean one thing, you are destined for success, if you made it this far type “920 Million Dollar Heist” in the comments below so we know who made it to the end.

Until next time Prophets, thanks for watching and keep on striving for success.

12 Things about Justin Bieber you didn’t know

Hello everyone, thank you for joining the Prophets of Success, a channel where the most successful people come to up their game.

It is said that if you have the talent and you work hard, you are bound to succeed in life. One practical example of this is the life of a singer worth $225 million at the age of 25.

A singer that started his career as a You Tuber, got discovered accidentally by the talent hunter Scooter Braun and sang for Barack Obama in the White House at the tender age of 13.

That’s right the topic of todays Video is Justin Bieber!

Born in Ontario, Canada on March 1st, 1994 Justin Bieber has witnessed stardom that most would dream of having in their teen years.

Being in the spotlight for so long, Justin Bieber’s life seems to be pretty much an open book to the general public: from his performance in the White House to breakup with Selena Gomez.

In today’s video, however, Prophets of Success will tell you 12 things about Justin Bieber you may have never heard of.

Before we embark on this enthralling journey together, be sure to subscribe to Prophets of success and click the bell icon to get updates on our latest videos.

Done?

Let’s get rolling then!

12- Claustrophobic

Imagine being a rock star having billions of fans across the globe and feeling uneasy in crowded and confined spaces.

Justin Bieber has to live through that every single day as he is surrounded by thousands of his fans wherever he goes – whether it be his concerts or just a daily stroll to the supermarket (though I am sure he is pretty well guarded at that instance).

Being claustrophobic and yet being one of the most popular singers having made over $100 million by selling music is a daunting task on its own and hats off for Justin to pull that off effectively.

11- Disney Land

Do you love Disney Land?

Well, Justin Bieber certainly does too.

He took his girlfriend to Disney Land on Valentine’s Day and has openly declared his praise for Lion King on Twitter.

A star for the world, the child inside Justin Bieber is still pretty much alive with his outspoken love for all things Disney.

10- Hair Locks

IHave you heard of the saying “money for old rope” well in this case its money for old hair!

After the rock star decided to change his looks and transform his hairstyle, he auctioned his hair locks on eBay for $12000!

If that sounds insane to you, let me tell you that it was sold for a whopping $46,000.

Justin used all the proceeds to donate to an animal rescue welfare society as a charity.

9- American Idol

A fan of the show, Bieber’s initial idea was to make himself known to the world by auditioning for the American Idol when he was 16.

Luckily for him, he got discovered 3 years before that through YouTube and had already become a worldwide sensation by the time he turned 16.

8- Will Smith

Justin Bieber idealizes the man who once said, “Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do it. If you want it, go get it.” Yep, that’s right.

The famous Hollywood star Will Smith.

Bieber does not consider any other singer to be his mentor rather Will Smith holds that charge for him and according to Will they talk at least once a week.

7- Rubix Cube

Not just a showcase of phenomenal talent with his voice, Justin Bieber is also a beauty with brains and can solve a Rubix cube in less than 2 minutes.

Brains, beauty, and talent. This guy has all of it.

6- Amsterdam

In October 2016, Bieber went on to purchase a $28 million penthouse in Amsterdam which was the most expensive apartment on the entire Dutch market.

Guess who his neighbors are? The Dutch Royal Family themselves!

5- Birthday Gift

How many times have you been asked the question: What would you gift yourself if you had $10 million?

Bieber had the answer to that question ready as he bought himself a $10.8 million mansion on his 18th birthday in Los Angeles.

Quite a treat for transforming into an adult, isn’t it?

4- Banned in China

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture banned Justin Bieber from performing in China?

Can you guess what did to deserve this?

Nothing.

The reason for his ban was that he was considered a spoilt performer in the eyes of the management in charge of the Bureau and they banned him from entering their country to keep it ‘pure’.

The Chinese can do wonders sometimes, no doubt about that.

Already surprised by these facts about Justin?

Lets move to the top 3 things about Beiber we bet you didn’t know.

3- Sued

Claustrophobic in nature, Justin Bieber finally decided to cancel all his meet and greet sessions as he believed the expectations of his fans were too much from him.

This angered thousands of fans who had already purchased the high-priced VIP tickets costing $1800.

One lady went on to sue Justin Bieber for his breach of the legal contract and was awarded $5300 in the final ruling that went in her favor. 

2- Throwing Eggs

Bieber was charged with $80,900 after he decided to throw eggs at his neighbors’ house.

In 2014, Bieber decided to have a little fun with his friends by throwing eggs at a neighbor’s house damaging his property.

Bieber was recorded to have had a lot of fun that night but it was short-lasting for him.

The next day he was arrested and was charged for vandalism alongside paying a fine of $80,900 for his actions.

Bieber confessed to his crime and paid the price.

1- Leopard Print Audi R8

Whilst many of us dream of owning our dream car, Justin is already living that dream.

The superstar owns a Leopard Print Audi R8 along with a Ferrari, Prado, and many other cars already parked in his garage.

Justin initially decided to cover both the exterior and the interior of the car with leather skin and posted his pictures with his car on social media creating a new hype.

Although he had an extensive car collection already, this particular car stood out due to its unique look.

Later, Justin got tired of the exterior look and got it painted to black but the interior of the luxury car remains of the leopard print. How cool is that?

Hey Prophets you stayed until the end and that can only mean one thing, you are destined for success, if you made it this far type “Belieber” in the comments below so we know who made it to the end.

Until next time Prophets, thanks for watching and keep on striving for success.

Hello everyone, thank you for joining the Prophets of Success, a channel where the most successful people come to up their game.

So Prophets, being rich and famous sure has its obvious perks.

Apart from the love you get in from your fans, you can use your wealth to fulfill your wildest fantasies.

Before we reveal these craziest things, be sure to subscribe to our channel and hit the bell icon to get regular updates on more amazing and mindboggling videos.
*Pause*

Done?

Let’s get rolling then!

10- Lady Gaga’s Ghosts

Do you believe in the existence of ghosts? Well, Lady Gaga most certainly did, or she wouldn’t have ever spent such hefty amounts to protect her.

Lady Gaga, hired ghost busters and paranormal experts who advised her to buy an Electro-Magnetic Field Reader which would help her detect the presence of the ghosts.

This device cost her $50,000 since she wanted the absolute best equipment money could buy. $50,000 to protect yourself from ghosts?

Sure Why not!

9- Elton John’s Flowers

For many girls out there, flowers are considered to be an ultimate show of affection from someone who loves them.

Elton John loved flowers as much as you do. Perhaps, even a little more.

To be precise, Elton spent 293,000 British pounds in less than two years on flowers alone!

God only knows if he was building a floral garden or something, but that certainly is a lot of money to be spending on flowers.

When questioned about his actions, Elton remarked, “It is my money, I shall spend it in whatever way I choose to.”

Fair enough, but just a heads-up for the girls who love flowers more than anything else in the world; you have competition boys.

8- Bono’s Hat

If you love the rock band U2, then surely you know the front man Bono.

Bono went to extreme measures to take his favorite hat on vacation and spent $1,700 for a plane ticket for his hat since it only travels first class and needs the traveling insurance.

Yep, he gave the privilege of first-class travel to his hat that most of us wouldn’t have the chance to witness as human beings.

How crazy is that?

7- Akon’s Diamond Mine

For most of us, this would be the ultimate dream in life: to own our own diamond mine.

Akon fulfilled this fantasy of his and ended up spending large sums of money (the amount of which is unrevealed) to purchase one to his name.

The singer, who insists that the mine is legitimate and doesn’t sell conflict diamonds, said that the mine was “pretty expensive,” but that he couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

When faced with a backlash against his purchase Akon told The Independent, “I don’t even believe in conflict diamonds. That’s just a movie.” He may or may not be right in this regard but one thing is for certain, it will be classified as one of the craziest thing he has spent money on in his portfolio.

6- Beyonce’s Leggings

The global superstar has always spent her money generously on herself. But she also bought her husband a private jet valued at $50 million which would help the two get faster to their gigs.

However, her craziest spending was witnessed at her performance at the BET Awards in 2007 when her gold embellished Balenciaga leggings were witnessed by the world.

Beyonce spent $100,000 on these leggings. So much for wearing them for one night.

5- Paris Hilton’s Dog House

Paris is a huge fan of pets and a dog lover in particular. But she seems to be on a whole new level of affection for her dogs when it comes to spending.

Back in 2009, Paris Hilton paid no less than $325,000 for a custom designer dog-house which replicated her own home right down to the barest of details including the mini designer furniture, heating, air conditioning, and the chandelier.

This certainly does not mean that the superstar left her dog with her in a stranded home. She always carried the dog with her which means the house was never even needed in the first place.

4- Celine Dion’s Air Purifier

Certainly, a lot of us may be a fan of the amazing vocals of Celine Dion. Her voice is so unique and perfect, right? Ever wondered why. To pamper her vocal cords while training them, Celine needed a humidifier which mostly vocalists need. No biggie.

What is big is that while an average vocalist spends around $200 on purchasing one, Celine went as far as spending $2 million on the air purifier.

Slightly above the market price? Yeah, we think so too.

Surprised by this 2 million dollar air purifier? Wait till you see the number 1 craziest thing purchased by a celebrity. It will blow you away.

3- Nicolas Cage’s Comics

Nicolas Cage has never lived a simple lifestyle since he became rich. The Hollywood star owns 2 yachts, 50 exotic cars, 12 mansions, 1 Gulfstream jet, a 28-room Bavarian castle, 2 islands in the Bahamas as well as a Lamborghini owned by the Iranian shah. He also owns a dinosaur skull after going into competition with Leonardo Di Caprio and emerging successful after paying $276,000.

A pretty diverse collection, right?  His most insane spending ever, however, was spending $1 million for a comic book collection that ended up getting stolen.

Luckily for Nicolas, he recovered it and sold it immediately making a profit of $1.1 million.

2- Mike Tyson’s Tigers

For his love of the species, the boxing legend bought 2 Bengal Tigers to serve as his pets for $70,000 each.

Tyson spent $200,000 annually on the food intake of these tigers and as he traveled extensively for work he had to leave behind a certified tiger tamer that cost him approximately $125,000 a year.

His love for the species is well appreciated but it is also true that they drained his bank account and this purchase can be classified as one of the craziest ever made in history.

And if you liked this fact about Iron Mike check out our link in the description to the video about how Mike Tyson went from $300 million in the bank to broke.

And that leads us into our final craziest celebrity splurge ,,,, and that could be no other than *pause*

1- Donald Trump

The current President of the United States of America is one of the richest men alive.

No doubt about that. He has built an empire of his own through his careful investing strategies. He did, however, deviate from his rational spending approaches on certain occasions to just show off his luxury to the general public.

Ever wondered, what if Donald Trump gets bored with his cars and the deluxe helicopters?

Thankfully, he has catered to that threat by purchasing a $100 million private jet for himself.

His personal Boeing 757 is amongst the most valuable and powerful private planes to exist on the surface of the earth. The 8th most expensive plane in the world (also known as Trump Force One) features a lounge, a dining room, a guest room, a 24-karat gold plated washroom sink, and a master bedroom for the billionaire Trump himself.

Almost everything on the jet is made out of pure gold and the plane itself is a technical wonder with a state of the art computerized glass cockpit. Since he travels mostly on official planes, a rule for serving presidents, this is considered to be one of the craziest most expensive things ever purchased by any celebrity.

We have another video for you that covers 10 other things that Donald Trump has purchased which you wont believe, check out the link in the description below.

Hey Prophets you stayed until the end and that can only mean one thing, you are destined for success, so if you made it this far type “The million dollar comic book” in the comments below so we know who made it to the end.

Until next time Prophets, thanks for watching and keep on striving for success.
