THE ‘MONEY BOX’ ROLE ($45,000)

moneyboxrole

Victor Lustig was born January 4, 1890 in Hostinné, Austria-Hungary (present day Czech Republic). Lustig was an extremely skilled con-man and is infamous for being “the man who sold the Eiffel Tower – twice”!

He’s also known for originating the “Rumanian Box” scam – aka the Money Box.

Lustig would approach an individual with a ‘machine’ he claimed could duplicate any currency placed inside it. The ‘machine’ was a specially designed mahogany box with two small slots and a number of levers and mechanisms that had to be carefully maneuvered to produce the duplicate currency.

To convince the person the Money Box truly worked, Lustig asked them for a $100 bill.
He would insert the bill into his device, and explain that the machine would take 6 hours to create the copy.

When the 6 hours had passed … Lustig would reach into the machine and magically produce a perfect ‘counterfeit’ bill (which was in fact, a real $100 bill he had pre-loaded)!

Lustig would then accompany the individual to a bank to authenticate the note.
Once the person was whipped into a frenzy (thinking they’d struck it rich) … Lustig would sell them the box for thousands and thousands of dollars.

Before delivering the machine … Lustig would pack the Money Box with 4 real $100 bills … which would provide him with 24 hours to get out of town … before the individual realized they’d been conned.

THE ‘CRÈME DE LA CRÈME’ ROLE ($60,000 – $65,000+)

We’re pretty sure you know the term … “crème de la crème” is borrowed from the French language, where it literally means … “cream of the cream”.

We’re also pretty certain you know that (metaphorically speaking) the term refers to “the best of the best”.

What you may NOT know is … interestingly enough, this expression is actually quite uncommon in French!

It’s widely believed this term may have originally had additional appeal in English due to the French language evoking a sense of sophistication, taste and style!
