Welcome to the Spam and Scam Stock Message Board!

The Spam & Scam Stock message board is intended to share info on stocks that are currently being spammed to the public by e-mail, fax, phone and internet message boards through "stock awareness" or "promtion" companies paid to "pump" a stock for the benefit of company officers.

Typically, these are the riskiest stocks since the companies are deliberately paying people to "pump" the share price to enable company officers sell stock to the unsuspecting public. Unfortunately, people buying these hyped stocks will become the next generation of BAG HOLDERS

Be advised that many stock promotions sent to the public are usually distributed by unidentified individuals seeking to defraud the public. Investors are encouraged to use care and Due Diligence (DD) in their investment decisions, as mass spam campaigns are commonly used by unscrupulous promoters in “pump and dump” schemes.

In most cases, these securities promoters and those who finance them hope to turn a quick profit when unsuspecting investors buy stocks based on unsupported or spurious claims/press releases - leading the stock's market value to plummet as soon as these promotional activities cease. Always remember that these promoters are front runners and already have received stock that they will be dumping on the unsuspecting investment community.

Internet Message Boards: Pump and Dump operations rely heavily on deceiving "suckers" on the stock message boards. The relationships of stock message board companies and Penny Stock "promotion" companies appears to be growing: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.asp?message_id=22443933

Junk Faxes: Pump and Dump operations continue to use "junk faxes" even in the age of emails.

*The owner of this web site has sued several Pump and Dump operations for spamming his fax machine.

Caveat Emptor: BUYER BEWARE. There is a public interest concern associated with the company, which may include a spam campaign, stock promotion or known investigation of fraudulent activity committed by the company or insiders. During a spam campaign, any stock that is not in the Current Information category will also have its quotes blocked on pinksheets.com.

"Watch Out For The Skull And Crossbones": http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/28/AR2007072800047.html

No Information: Indicates companies that are not able or willing to provide disclosure to the public markets - either to a regulator, an exchange or Pink Sheets. Companies in this category do not make Current Information available via Pink Sheets News Service, or if they do, the available information is older than six months.

This category includes defunct companies that have ceased operations as well as 'dark' companies with questionable management and market disclosure practices. Publicly traded companies that are not willing to provide information to investors should be treated with suspicion and their securities should be considered highly risky.

Limited Information: Is designed for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or in bankruptcy to make the limited information they have publicly available. The Limited Information category also includes companies that may not be troubled, but are unwilling to meet Pink Sheets' Guidelines for Providing Adequate Current Information.

Current Information: Indicates reporting companies that submit filings to regulators with powers of review and that make the filings publicly available or non-reporting companies that make current information publicly available on the Pink Sheets News Service. The Current Information category is based on the level of disclosure and is not a designation of quality or investment risk. This category includes shell or development stage companies with little or no operations as well as companies without audited financials and as such should be considered extremely speculative by investors.

OTCQX: Companies worthy of investor consideration that have operating businesses, audited financials and provide credible disclosure to the public can qualify for the OTCQX premium market tier. Designed to meet the particular needs of small to medium-sized U.S. public companies and foreign stock exchange-listed companies, OTCQX aims to raise the visibility among U.S. investors of OTC traded companies that have strong operating models and that provide high-quality disclosure to the marketplace. For more information on OTCQX, please see www.otcqx.com.
