Description

Born to Steal: When the Mafia Hit Wall Street

Gary Weiss

Grand Central Publishing

May 1 2003

This account of the Mafia's infiltration of Wall Street uses as its chief source a fast-talking Staten Island kid named Louis Pasciuto who, from age 19-25, moved stocks for 17 different brokerage housesmost of that time without even a fake license. Louis was the consummate liar, selling overpriced and phantom stocks to naive Americans and leading a lifestyle worthy of Caligula. To avoid a long prison sentence, he ultimately became a witness for the state. Among the book's scenes: morning pep rallies filled with Dr. Seuss poetry and "Rocky" theme music; tie-'em-up-in-knots cold-call sessions that netted for each hood-broker as much as $500, 000 per month; 36-hour cocaine binges; orgies; and tussles with Mafia thugs toting Mac 10 machine pistols.
