7. Al Capone: $1.3 billion
This would have to be one of the smartest cocaine dealers in the history of drug lords since Al Capone always thought ahead. He never worried about getting caught by the police and this was because he had forged an image of himself that would see him give back millions of dollars to charity and homeless people. In other words, he would make millions a day from his drug business and give hundreds of thousands of dollars back to the community —that way, nobody would ever question where all of Capone’s money was coming from. In his lifetime, Al Capone made $1.3 billion.
