Eliot Ness

Eliot Ness

A member of Al Capone's gang promised federal agent Eliot Ness that $1000 (around $33,000 in 2018 adjusting for inflatin) would be on his desk every Monday if he turned a blind eye to their bootlegging. Ness refused the bribe and in later years he struggled with money. He died almost broke at the age of 54.
