Feel uneasy about going to see The Wolf of Wall Street? Jordan Belfort’s crimes cost victims more than 100 million dollars and more than 90% of the losses remain unpaid.
Now you can help the victims. You can give a couple dollars to the court-administered Belfort victims restitution fund.
Write a check payable to “Clerk of the Court, EDNY” and in the memo line of the check make sure to include the words: “U.S. v. Jordan Belfort, CR-98-0159.”
Then mail to:
Clerk of the Court
Eastern District of New York
225 Cadman Plaza East
Brooklyn, NY 11201
