If I had money.
It is unlikely that many of us thought about buying a commodity on the black market, but curious to know, overall, how wide his range is, though.
We learned that you can find on the black market, and, frankly, some goods were not even in our wildest assumptions.
1. Sea cucumber
Though these sea creatures and not so pretty to look at, but have a high value: in many countries they are considered a delicacy, and it leads to excessive fishing of sea cucumbers. In the end they fall to the black market where their price comes up to $ 500 per 1 kg.
2. The dust from the surface of the moon
In 2011, at auction in St. Louis got lunar dust which was brought to the Ground after the first landing of astronauts on the moon in 1969. It was a very small amount, but considering that 1 gram of lunar substance is estimated at $ 50 800, the sellers could obtain a good profit. Of course, if it is not learned at NASA and not seized the stolen samples.
3. Rhino horn
Powdered Rhino horn has long been considered a medicinal substance, and, although studies do not confirm this, the myth has proved so tenacious that the animals are still the target of poachers. They sell the horns of rhinos at a price of about $ 65 thousand and above per 1 kg.
Oil is a real machine for money, and therefore attracts the attention of thieves. So, the Mexican drug cartels received $ 90 thousand in just 7 minutes draining the precious fluid from the pipeline.
5. Instructions for robbing ATMs, prescriptions drugs
By themselves, the instructions do not sound sinister and not a crime, but everything changes, if we are talking about robbing ATMs, computer hacking or drug manufacture. The price of such “Cribs”, as a rule, not very large, and the range is quite wide: for example, you can obtain instructions for obtaining free pizzas in the UK.
6. Plastic surgery
Plastic surgery is an expensive and complex procedure, requiring the work of a skilled specialist. Unfortunately, there are people who can’t afford it, but I don’t want to abandon the operation and turn to surgeons on the black market. Needless to say, what terrible consequences may result from such an approach.
7. “Devil’s breath”
Scopolamine, or “devil’s breath” is a potent substance, which the criminals use for stupefying victims, literally turning them into weak-willed zombies: forced to remove everything from Bank accounts or hand over the keys to cars and apartments. This drug is especially dangerous because it is invisible (has no taste or smell) and causes memory lapses.
The danger of this radioactive element used in nuclear power plants, does not stop sellers on the black market: uranium finds its buyer, despite the potential threat to his health.
9. Uniform state services
In addition to the fake documents on the black market, you can find the uniform public services and the professions, for example a full set of clothes military, police, pilot or flight attendant.
10. Old bombs
Few will be surprised to learn that the modern weapons can be bought on the black market, but why buy old unexploded ordnance of the First or Second world war? Surprisingly, someone is really willing to buy something that could explode unpredictably at any moment.
