A useful site pumpsanddumps.com

Here is how they discribed John Person in previous pump and dump:

"After staying relatively quiet for the last several months, Imperial Resources (IPRC) is going to have another go at a Pump & Dump. This is one of several such schemes that have taken place over the past few years involving companies boasting energy plays in Barnett Shale fields of Texas. In this particular scam, John Person writes in a paid piece, through TopStockAnalysts.com calling for a baseless, ten fold increase in the share price of IPRC within the next 4 months and a ridiculous move to $7.00 next year. We like the way he boasts that you can now buy the shares under a buck. In fact, you can buy them for 30 cents, but don't unless you don't need to put your kids through college and want to delay your retirement. The despicable Person boasts that he has been quoted on Dow Jones Newswire, Reuters CBS MarketWatch and CNBC. We'll just call him a liar, as all pimps are, and leave it at that."

"Move along folks. There's nothing to see here".

Where's all the paid mailers gone?

There haven't been a whole lot of payed mailers recently. It seems like the promoters have been holding off with their campaigns do to the market uncertainty which is too bad for traders. We need the next LEXG. In the mean time it's best to educate yourselves. Download a free 30 page ebook on making big money by trading penny stocks: bit.ly

Why bother with the expense of the hard mailer campaign if you're a promoter? Just sub out your pump to awesomepennystocks or victory mark...have them email out on it while you dump all shares...and then pay them a little extra to issue a 'cancelled' email. Their list will still await the next pump eagerly.

Everybody wins. Well...not EVERYBODY. :)

Who paid for this travesty and how much, I wonder. Got this yesterday. Is it just me, or is this one of the least visually appealing mailers to hit in some time?

The B.S. verbiage is the same as most of the others (destined to run from under $1 to an arbitrary $8.88), but the spiff-factor is lacking.

Not that it matters to me, but I feel the "sheeple" that tend to get roped into these mailer plays, believing they're good long-term investments rather than highly volatile and risky short-term trades, are more strongly influenced by pertier "reports". JMO Any successful P&D needs that steady flow of "new blood" that sees the deal as a compelling long-term investment and not an artificially inflated stock with nothing of substance behind it.

I was always more a fan of the glossy "postcards" than the multiple page reports stuffed with largely irrelevant and misleading info like comparisons to multi-billion dollar "comps", obscene and baseless growth estimates, etc. But this one looks like my 6th grader tossed it together at recess. At least the postcards, at least the "good" ones, only have room to list a few real facts or somewhat intriguing reasons to look into the deal.

What really grinds my gears is that while the legal disclaimer notes that IMNG did not pay to put this out, I find it hard to believe that "Legendary Stocks", who holds no position in this deal, came out of their pocket to create and disseminate this piece without being compensated. AND I don't see any mention of anybody, even an "undisclosed 3rd party/big holder, shelling out $$ for this. No compensation? At least I didn't see it here. Someone had to pay for it, wonder whom? Forgive me if I've overlooked any mentioned of financier here, I am going blind.

This is the first mail I've received from these guys and I'm starting to wonder if they're just a rookie outfit not fully schooled to the game, OR if this is a new type of "snail mail spam". Either way, IMNG has popped nicely thus far and someone ("Mr. Chang, is there such a person?), seems to have run her down nicely right before the mailer hit. I was traveling when this reached my house, but perhaps I'll get in on their next play if the timing is right and nothing goes drastically wrong with the IMNG plan.

Any thoughts? Bets on IMNG doing $90M in net profits any time soon?

I ronical isn't it? One of the cheapest looking hard mailers I've ever received with a mediocre budget yet it still manages to rise EVEN AS people are getting the mailers in their mailboxes. Something most of the ultra-fancy ones seem incapable of nowadays. With them you sell once the mailer is received. Hell it's sell once it gets posted here by someone!

Maybe they decided to spend less on the mailers and save the balance of the $ to support this pig's pps longer? It's cheapness is one of the reasons I sold out "quickly" at .76c from my .60 buys.

Jokes on me huh? Prolly goes to $1.25-$1.50 because I'm gone. Now THAT grinds my gears.

Tis a shame these aren't what they once were most times. That's why you have to book gains early on. Most aren't capable of even getting this far...and this far isn't really that far at all is it?
