Meyer is described in the following way;
A small, flat-nosed Jew raised his large head and regarded me with two fine growths of hair which luxuriated in either nostril. After a moment I discovered his tiny eyes in the half darkness.
His cufflinks were made from human molars.
He paused. ‘I see you’re looking at my cuff buttons.’ I hadn’t been looking at them, but I did now. They were composed of oddly familiar pieces of ivory. ‘Finest specimens of human molars,’ he informed me.
Gatsby tells us that Meyer is a gambler.
‘Meyer Wolfshiem? No, he’s a gambler.’ Gatsby hesitated, then added coolly: ‘He’s the man who fixed the World’s Series back in 1919.’
From this information, we can infer that Gatsby's enterterprises are sketchy as well.
