Lansky was known as The Mob Accountant, who developed the National Crime Syndicate with Charles ‘Lucky’ Luciano that connected the Italian Mafia families with the Jewish Mafia and other organizations.

Despite his ties with organized crime for more than five decades, he was never convicted of any kind of serious crime except illegal gambling costs.

He was supposed to be worth more than $ 20 million at his death in 1980 (corresponding to $ 193 million after correction for inflation) due to lung cancer, but his family learned that his estate was worth about $ 57,000.
