If you’re willing to get shot at—and potentially thrown into a foreign prison—then this job is for you. Aircraft repossessors can earn commissions equal to 6 to 10 percent of the resale price of a plane, which means seizing an aircraft worth millions of dollars can bring in about $900,000.

Bounty Hunter

Although this particular line of work may get you killed, the pay ranges from 10 to 20 percent of your quarry’s bail deposit. So is it worth the risk? Well, a suspect who skips out on $100,000 bail could net a bounty hunter $10,000 to $20,000 upon his or her return. Find out the bizarre jobs that don't exist in America.
