Willoughby Farr went to jail in October 2003 and became a millionaire behind bars.

Federal regulators say Farr ran a scheme from jail that brought in $34 million by "cramming" billing telephone customers for nonexistent long-distance charges.

Farr, 44, now serving time for driving offenses, managed to run his operation for more than two years from a jail pay phone, and with the help of a few employees and his mother on the outside.

From the lockup, he managed to buy expensive sports cars he never drove and a $6 million mansion he lavishly furnished but could only fantasize about living in.
