Sanford made his fortune as the owner of First Premier Bank and Premier Bankcard, both among the nation's leading credit card providers. Sanford's net worth is roughly $1.0 billion, and he is ranked as #701 in Forbes list of richest people in the world. Until prevented by federal law, the credit cards from banks controlled by Sanford charged $256 in fees per year for a card with a $250 credit limit.
