9. Bertha Leibbeke
This is a true criminal genius. Outsmarting the cops for as long as this woman did is no small feat.
Bertha played up her feminine edge. She would go up to a man a considerable wealth. She would feign frailty and faint into his arms. During the interaction, she was able to expertly pickpocket them of their valuables. She went by many aliases and alluded the police in several counties. She was eventually arrested in Nebraska and sentenced.
