'Wolf of Boca Raton' Living Large in $7.5 Million Condo
In the movie, The Wolf of Wall Street, Jonah Hill played Leonardo DiCaprio’s partner in crime. He was part goofball, part hustler.
Together those two Wall Street executives scammed millions of dollars from investors while living a life of luxury with mansions, yachts and plenty of debauchery.
Jonah Hill’s character was inspired by The Wolf of Wall Street's right-hand-man in real life, Daniel Porush. In 2002, Porush was sentenced to four years in prison for securities fraud and ordered to pay his victims a whopping $200 million in restitution.
Porush still owes an estimated $190 million to his victims, but INSIDE EDITION found that he's still living like a king! He gets around in a $300,000 Rolls Royce. He resides with his second wife, Lisa in a $7.5 million condo in North Miami, Florida.
They also live in a six- bedroom home in an ultra-exclusive gated community 35 miles away in Boca Raton, complete with all the amenities you'd expect from life with the country club set.
Now, some people are calling Daniel Porush by a new nickname: “The Wolf of Boca Raton.”
They say he’s back to his old tricks just as he did with investors on Wall Street.
He now helps run a company called Med-Care, which sells medical supplies like diabetes testing kits and sleeping aids, mainly to the elderly.
Antwyon Carter worked at Med-Care until 2013. At first he says he was intrigued working with the flamboyant character that was so closely associated with the notorious “Wolf of Wall Street.”
“I wanted to go over and shake his hand and get his autograph but that probably would have been very inappropriate,” he told INSIDE EDITION.
But as time went on he felt more uncomfortable because he says elderly customers were pushed into buying items they didn't necessarily need - all paid for with your tax dollars through Medicare.
He also says many senior citizens thought he and the other tele-markers at the company were actually calling from Medicare because the company's name, Med-Care, sounds almost identical to Medicare.
“They'd say, ‘Medicare, okay great, I’m so glad you called,’” Carter explained. “Should I say, correct them [and say] Med-Care or should I just go with Medicare? You know what? We're going to go with Medicare and we're just going ahead and push the product out.”
Claims like these are now being made by other former employees in a lawsuit against Porush and Med-Care.
Porush didn't reply to our requests for an interview, so INSIDE EDITION’s Lisa Guerrero caught up with him as he arrived to work with his wife in that white Rolls Royce.
Guerrero asked, “You once scammed investors for millions of dollars. Are you now scamming the elderly?”
Porush replied, “No comment.”
Guerrero then asked, “Sir, are you ripping off taxpayers?”
“No, not at all,” he replied.
“You’re driving around in a Rolls Royce, you live in a multi-million dollar home, is that fair?” Guerrero asked.
“I'm in full compliance with all restitution orders,” he said. “I paid my debt to society.”
She then asked, “What do you have to say to your victims?” But he didn’t answer and walked away.
Earlier this year, the FBI raided Med-care’s offices and confiscated boxes of records. Med-Care and Porush deny any wrongdoing, saying they provide a valuable service and comply with all laws.
