"Pump and Dump" Stock Date
This is how this scam works:
  1. The scammers quietly buy lots of inexpensive shares in a particular company, usually one that is small and sparsely traded.
  2. They then flood email inboxes everywhere with millions of messages touting the company as a hot stock and urging people to buy quickly. Pump.
  3. Enough unwitting investors buy the stock to create artificially high demand and prices.
  4. The scammers then stop promoting the stock and quickly sell their cheaply-purchased shares for a profit. Dump.
  5. The stock price plummets back to its pre-scam levels or even lower, and the conned investors are left with stock shares worth significantly less than what they paid.
Don't fall for it!
