Jordan Belfort, habitually called the Wall Street Wolf, from his previous books, life-style, business and now movie, was born to accountant parents Max and Lear Belfort in 1962. He is known for his, possibly greatest brokerage firms on the Wall Street in the 1990s, Stratton Oakmont, however he was never on Wall Street but on Long Island. His sales tactics, and energy to get rich and famous, saw him found Stratton Oakmont, a brokerage firm that sold gullible investors unworthy stocks and left them out in the cold when the stocks came crashing. This venture resulted in him serving twenty-two months in prison, and paying compensation to those he conned. Whilst operating Stratton Oakmont, he earned more than one billion dollars, with the help of over one-thousand loyal staff he hired to sell penny stocks to investors. Him and his employees got rich fast and lived on the fast lane of life, partying hard and abusing drugs.
