I am a professional small-cap seller, who advises clients on an irregular basis. Some would say I 'Pump and Dump'. I have worked for Lehman, GS and Barclays. I usually cold-call clients initially, specialising in attracting middle to low-wealth widows, orphans and Tea Party enthusiasts. I first found I had this skill set when I sold some worthless wood, shaped to appear like an antique, to my grandmother. I then sold her to a Russian chap for a truckload of vodka and an orphan.
