Coffee With Jeff #112: “Count” Victor Lustig

30 mins - Published Sun, Nov 13, 2016 by Jeff Kelley

His name was Robert V. Miller but he called himself “Count” Victor Lustig. He sold a machine to duplicate money, robbed money from a bank, was caught, and talked his way out of charges, and then escaped from an escape-proof jail! He was called the smoothest con man in the world but most people know his as the man who sold the Eiffel Tower.
