Jordan Belfort was a Long Island penny stock broker who became a financial mogul & featured on the front cover of Forbes Magazine as the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’.
In the early 90’s, while still in his 20s, Belfort founded the Stratton-Oakmont brokerage house. Together with his trusted lieutenant Donny Azoff & a band of jackpot crazed money brokers, Belfort amassed a huge fortune by defrauding wealthy investors out of $millions in boiler room scams. As his status grew, so too did the amount of substance he abused. Quaaludes being his drug of choice. At the peak of the madness he took 10-20 a day, enough to kill an elephant calf. As the drug taking increased, so too did the size of the lavish parties & his lies. As Belfort & his cronies engaged in a hedonistic brew of sex, drugs & rock & roll, the SEC & FBI closed in on his empire of excess.
Was all this legal? Absolutely not.
Following a plea deal with the FBI, he eventually served 22 months in prison for defrauding investors.
