We can’t speak from experience, but if we were master criminals, then the last thing we’d want to do is write about it online. It’s just common sense, right? Well, this simple fact is something that was lost entirely on these wannabe crooks. Indeed, they were dumb enough to think that they could turn to Facebook to advertise their crimes and still get away with it. D’oh.
20. Jean Jacques
In 2012 thief Jean Jacques reportedly robbed an acquaintance and then posted the spoils of the robbery online under the alias “Crime Pays Zoe Dollaz.” Jacques forgot, though, that his victim had his phone number and could easily connect him to the Facebook account with a simple search. Jacques, then, quickly found himself sitting in a Florida jail cell.
