'The Wolf of Wall Street': The Real Story (Not Hollywood's Fantasy Version)

Contrary to what is portrayed in Martin Scorsese's hit movie and the book on which it was based, convicted penny stock fraudster Jordan Belfort did not swindle only the wealthy, was unknown on Wall Street – much less its 'Wolf', and, when caught, immediately caved and agreed to help build a case against his so-called friends in return for leniency.

In short, he preyed on the elderly and other vulnerable members of society and sold out his co-conspirators at the first opportunity. And, despite his public utterances to the contrary, Belfort has voluntarily paid virtually nothing towards satisfying a $110 million judgment to compensate his victims and, in fact, he recently asked the court to let him off paying any more.

In this session, the FBI Special Agent and former U. S. federal prosecutor who were in charge of the investigation and prosecution, respectively, of Belfort and his Long Island-based boiler room operation, Stratton Oakmont, will take you behind-the-scenes and sort out fact from the fiction that Belfort, movie director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio would have you believe.
