1. Think that being a bank robber pays big? Think again. "Statistically speaking, robbing banks is a bad idea. The return on an average bank robbery is, frankly, rubbish. It is not unimaginable wealth." How bad is the pay? 

    Here’s a look:

    $7,500 — Average haul for U.S. bank robberies in 2010

    $4,330 — Average haul for U.S. bank robberies in 2006 

    5,500 — U.S. bank robberies in 2010 

    7,500+ — U.S. bank robberies in 2005

    33 — Percent of bank robberies that yield nothing 

    22 — Percent of U.S. bank robberies where the cash was recovered (2010)

    The poor rewards of robbing banks: By the numbers
