2. Sean Quinn
According to his own PR, Sean Quinn was just a simple Irishman who liked a drink in his local pub and took long walks in the mountains of County Cavan.

But Ireland's richest man worth an estimated £4.4bn never lived a simple life. Not many of his fellow countrymen, suffering from the implosion of the Irish economy, would walk home to a 14,700 sq ft palatial mansion with a 15m swimming pool, indoor cinema and golf simulator overlooking a luxury hotel and golf course.
