Strangest Client You Have

Hey guys it's Jeff,

From a BB on 67th, we upgraded our offices and I used to have luncheon at the Wayfarer, so you know I'm real and really manage serious accounts.

And I was wondering if any of you had some obscenely bizarre clients.

Granted we all have heard of UBS and Guo Wengui, who was up there in terms of absolutely bizarre cases, but I'm wondering if you've had an even more unknown / bizarre character. There was the thread about Italian nobility still existing which was good.

So I can't give too many details because I already gave my first name, but let me tell you something.

I have the fucking weirdest client. Like there are many families and shmucks with like $10m-ish, some at 30, uhnw at like 100-150ish

There's is one guy, on my life, noone understands. He looks cracked out, no family nothing when you google him, we don't even know if he's real and have done background checks but thing is the place he has money is a legitimate country which does screening as well, think UK etc.

It's not some shady shit. But if you were to see him like not sitting in the $500 chair, with his arms folded, you would be telling security to show him to the nearest exit.

In fact I've see kids literally shove this guy to the side of the street, as he walked up to our building (I was watching down below)

He looks, not homeless, homeless is slightly too on edge, but if he said he's been sleeping in the park, it would make sense

The hoodie's torn, $10, ish, the kicks are Walmart tier, he doesn't cut his hair. Women like step off the sidewalk when they see this guy

Hell even the homeless think this dude is in a rut. But when he's in my office and I see the account, and I have to text his shit flip-phone to let him know we made $100,000,000 in interest, this dude just drinks a monster out of a can and fucking like walks away

He doesn't drive, no taxi nothing.

Does anyone deal with this type of client? 

Ie the non-equity paper type with 0 history and yet carries me and everyone who works for me??
