Both crime and adultery require a certain amount of skill, a solid helping of luck and a whole lot of cunning. Some people successfully cultivate all three. They know how to hide their activities and are excellent liars. These are the people who manage to pull off bank heists, robberies, years long con man jobs and still disappear into the night as a free man. These are the Moriartys of the modern era.
Then, there are the dumb criminals and the dumb cheaters. They are the ones who managed to strike out on luck, skill and cunning. They are the ones that held up a restaurant that was throwing a retirement party for a bunch of FBI agents and the ones that tried to flee the scene of a crime by running through the woods while wearing light-up shoes.
Cheaters run a similar gamut. Some have the same combination of luck, skill and cunning that makes for great criminals. These are the adulterers who successfully coordinate three different lovers, a spouse, two kids and a full time job without anyone involved being aware of how badly they are being betrayed. Others have about as much sense as the guy who tried to rob a bank while dressed as a potted plant. Here are five cheaters who got caught in the dumbest ways.
