Don’t Be Tempted by Penny Stocks

I filter through a lot of news on the internet just about every day as I look for ideas on what I should be writing about. Sometimes I’m looking for news on a particular topic and a totally unrelated news item or article pops up, catches my attention and the next thing you know, that […]

Bot Net Used To Promote Pump-And-Dump Stock Scam

I’ve talked here about pump-and-dump stock scams as well as “bot nets” in the past, and this story combines these two subjects nicely and shows how computer hacking has evolved from an activity that was once practiced mostly by teenagers to impress their peers into a huge criminal enterprise where serious money is being made by […]

Texas Crook Sought In Penny Stock Scam

Out on bail and already in trouble for allegedly being involved in a stock market scam, Ballow is now accused of cooking up another […]

Penny Stock Crap Flood Continutes

They really are pumping PPTL up like crazy. Some scumbags(s) must really need to unload a boatload of this stock in a big way.

Investment Advisors Coming Out of The Woodwork

The stock spam-scam messages are continuing at a pace I have not seen for quite a while. The losers sending out the GAPJ “alerts” must be getting quite desperate since I am receiving them almost daily and the stock continues to do nothing except hold or drop a little. I hope they lose their shirts! […]

Two More Pump-And-Dumpers

Here are the latest two pump-and-dump stock scam e-mail mesages I have received. The first is for a company called Phinder Technologies, Inc. (PHDTF). I happened to check the chart to see just how hard this stock ran Monday (yesterday), and was very surprised (NOT!) to see that the only direction it ran in was […]

More GAPJ Spam – A Sign of A Desperate Pump-And-Dumper?

I received yet another e-mail message pumping the GAPJ stock today. That is about the fourth message I have received for this stock in just the last few days. I am wondering if this is a sign of a pump-and-dump scammer that has become desperate to move this stock up so that they or the […]
