They evaluate if their prospects have interest in working with them and if they are suitable or an accredited investor. If so, the firm begins discussions with the investor about stocks.

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
EJ Sterling Inc. Broker EJ Sterling EJ Sterling IS A SCAM BOILER ROOM OPERATION. TOTAL THIEFS AVOID THEM manhattan, New York
EJ Sterling is a scam. These guys employ high pressure sales tactics to steal you from your money. This operation by EJ sterling is a scam, and they sell stocks that are worthless. These guys managed to convince me into investing with them. The shares becamse worthless and were simply inflated.
After doing some more research I learned how big of a scam they truly were. There's another firm in New York, called Stratton Oakmont, which is what their old "shop" was called. This is simply the same crew but under a new name. These guys are total scams, and so was Stratton Oakmont
To give you some info about Stratton, this was a long Island - pump and dump boiler room broker. Do your research before doing business with scams like EJ Sterling which is Stratton Oakmont
there's a wikipedia link about Stratton Oakmont
AVOID THESE GUYS AT ALL COSTS. THESE GUYS STOLE MY MONEY. THEY'LL DO IT TO YOU AS WELL.
