Many people all over the world dream to become rich. Some of them work from morning till night in order to make their net worth bigger. The others choose the way of crime. Pablo Escobar managed to save $25 billion and had become one of the most successful criminals in the world. But he was killed, being just 44 years old, when he tried to escape from police.

Pablo Escobar is absolutely self made billionaire. He was born in a family of a farmer and a schoolteacher and lived in incredible poverty in his early years. Later he was included in Forbes list of billionaires. He was a constant participant of that list since 1987 till 1993. In 1987 Forbes estimated his net worth as “more than $3 billion”. By the way, “Forbes” predicted his tragic death from policeman’s bullet.

In his young years Pablo told, that he dreamed to become a President of Columbia. Instead of it he had become the leader of Medellin Cartel. Escobar used to control 80% of drug market in USA.

Pablo Escobar started to save his net worth in his teens. At first Pablo was a street thief and made several hundred dollars or so daily. But he dreamed about much bigger amounts, so soon he found the way to cigarette smuggling business. Finally, he was involved into drug business, which actually made a billionaire from an ordinary Columbian teenager.

Pablo managed to become the head of Medellin Cartel, when drug trafficker Fabio Restrepo was deceased. It was not proved, but probably, it was Pablo Escobar, who was responsible for his death.

From that moment Escobar had become the head of Medellin Cartel and made $420 million per week.

Policemen were haunting Escobar for years. Detectives Javier Peña and Steve Murphy followed him all the time. Finally, he was shot by a sniper, when he attempted to escape from police.
