Boiler room

An unflattering 

Term

 used to describe a 

Fraud

 scheme in which salespeople are hired to 

Call

 unsuspecting individuals and push investment opportunities. These high-pressure calls are often used to 

Pitch

 worthless or nonexistent securities. These operations typically consist only of a large number of telephones in a 

Single

 room, giving rise to their name.
