David Slaine, The Man Who Lived Out The Wall Street Plot

David Slaine, The Man Who Lived Out The Wall Street Plot
News

It’s pretty crazy that one person’s life could be so easily turned into a movie, David Slaine is the one person. His life is very comparable to the plot of the motion picture Wall Street.

David Slaine is an informant on insider trading for the FBI and he is very good at his job. He went from being a regular working class guy to a small time trader who got caught using inside information and had the choice of taking a plea deal to be an informant.

Slaine chose to be an informant and he is known as the best informant on insider trading there is.

Slaine would do things like, copy Instant Messages between him and other traders, wear a wire tap to meetings, and wear a baseball cap with a recording device to lunches with people the FBI was probing. He has helped the government really shut down as much insider trading as they can and put away many inside traders.
