I am very curious as to how these schmucks that call and try and sell you their picks acquire their leads. If anyone has knowledge of the inner workings on these boiler room scams, I am just fascinated by their business. Any details or shared experiences would be helpful.

HAHA..Funny Guy.

Yes, the old calling the 800 number from a radio station.

I prefer to discuss this with people that have worked inside one of these places to offer their 2 cents on how these touts operate. I am curious in regards to the day to day operations of these places. Do they sell the list to their competitors?

I have heard that theory before. I read it on some site bashing touts. Its an additional money maker for the offshore sites. If not, who is to say that there isn't some crook on the inside who wants to make some extra $ on the side and sells the names to the scamdicappers.

Anyone actually work in one of these places wanna chime in?

I almost signed up at Bovada. What stopped me was at the registration page they wanted alot of sensitive information. Common sense just told me to tell them to go darn themselves. Why the darn does some site based in Latvia want my social security number AND my mothers maiden name. That is some serious info for an illegel activity to begin with. No thanks.
