The true story of the man who scammed the mob and informed the FBI for over two decades. Eddie Trascher had balls. Born in the bayou of Louisiana, Eddie learned about gambling at the side of his stepfather. Starting his career in 1950s Vegas, he moved to pre-Castro Cuba and became adept at running a casino and stealing from the mobsters who owned it. He was a regular fixture at Rat Pack-era Vegas--stealing chips from the craps table, running gambling out of his bar, and hanging around with a wild assortment of gangsters, conmen, thieves, and celebrities. By the time he moved to Clearwater, Florida, after a stint running a Los Angeles hotel for the Chicago Outfit, Eddie was the biggest bookmaker in the state. But the FBI made him an offer he couldn't refuse: "Help us get the Mafia and we'll let you keep bookmaking." For the next twenty years, Eddie became the Bureau and later the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's eyes and ears as they investigated organized crime in Florida. From the famous Donnie Brasco case to the new guard of the Tampa Mafia, Eddie was in the middle of it all. Eventually, he gave up the booking to become a professor, teaching law enforcement everything there was to know about bookmaking and running the scams. "Balls" is the story of the quintessential gangster, a man who didn't make money for anyone but himself. Instead of working for the Mafia bosses, Eddie stole from right under their noses. And he lived to tell the story.

Excerpt from Telemarketing Fraud: Putting Phone Scams on Hold; Hearing Before the Committee on Small Business, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session, Washington, DC, September 28, 1994 The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:20 a.m., in room 2359-A, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. John J. LaFalce (chairman of the committee) presiding. Chairman LaFalce. The Small Business Committee will come to order. Our committee meets this morning to address telemarketing fraud, a problem of growing national importance both for American consumers and for the business community. At one time or another, most of us have been exposed to a sales pitch that was too good to be true, a sweepstakes in which we are proclaimed to have already won, or a free offer that we later learn contains more than a few catches and conditions. Perhaps because we are all familiar with these types of offers and deals, we assume that telemarketing fraud is an occasional annoyance, a minor event in the modem world of sales and marketing. Unfortunately, that is not the case. We are witnessing a new generation of telemarketing fraud, a landscape of high-tech boiler rooms and computerized phone lists of vulnerable victims. All told, these scam artists took in an estimated $10 billion from consumers in 1993. The total figure may be four times higher than that, as high as $40 billion, because so much of this fraud goes unreported. Welcome to a world where threats and harassment are common sales tactics, where profits are high but prizes are nonexistent. According to an award-winning series of articles that appeared last year in the Buffalo News, one telemarketing firm took in $40,000 per week and paid its workers as much as $250,000 per year. Another sweepstakes firm grossed $11 million per year, but gave away only one car as a prize during that time. In Iowa, a single senior citizen recently lost $167,000 to the telesharks. Today's hearing will focus on both the fraud against small business and on the effects of consumer telemarketing fraud on legitimate telemarketers and legitimate small businesses. In a few minutes, we will hear firsthand how these telemarketing sales pitches take place. It is no secret that the perpetrators of telemarketing fraud prey on the weakest and most vulnerable members of society. In matters of consumer fraud, this typically means senior citizens living on fixed incomes or a small savings account, many of whom are less able to withstand the high-pressure sales tactics of a teleshark.
