Fast Eddie's tech stock scam

Author: JT Smith

Australian IT: "Fast Eddie is running hot, ready to offer the best deal around. He works for
a firm based in Bangkok that sells shares in high-tech stocks and he uses
high-pressure sales tactics to persuade the person on the other end of the
phone to part with their cash.

His company takes advantage of the unsuspecting and the naive, but mostly the greedy. Australians and New Zealanders are key targets for
cold-calling operations such as the one Fast Eddie works for."
