Eiffel Tower Was Once Sold For Scrap

True Story About Eiffel Tower.

A scrap metal dealer paid lots of money for it. He was however deceived by a very clever and persuasive conman. The one to sell the Eiffel Tower was Victor Lusting who in the early 1920s managed to convince the poor and quite naive dealer, that the city of Paris wanted to sell the tower because of the expense of maintaining. For that ‘deal’ Lusting got a suitcase full of cash and was never seen again!
