1898 – Jefferson “Soapy” Smith, one of the most notorious con men in the history of the West, was shot & killed in Skagway, Alaska during the gold rush, while trying to “crash” a vigilante meeting to convince the townsfolk he wasn’t a crook. One of his ‘con’s’ included placing a $100 bill into a tissue wrapped soap bar and selling similar bars for $5.00 each, assuring the crowd that there were other $100 bills in other bars. A confederate would joyfully “win” the bar with the $100 bill, thus stimulating the sale of bars containing nothing but soap to the gold miners.
