That's funny, truth

If you've been following the saga of stock promoter FG outing his out tout SEVU on ihub, you will see that McBride stated that FG told him that in 24 hours he'd give him a symbol and he should just buy tons of it as it will run. In 24 hours FG gave him a symbol, McBride bought and then proceeded to lose $18,000. I bet that $18K ended up in FG's pocket from his sales.

What gets me is that anyone would buy a tout. You need to buy it before the tout in order to make money on a run. When they're touting, it's going down, not up. Of course these people can't sue for being taken either as they were basically going to make money off manipulation off "insider" information. Nice scam.

There's a new program on TV. I just got digital cable. It's a consumer program about scams kinda like candid camera but they rip people off. It's amazing watching these people getting ripped off in these scams. Greed and wishful thoughts sure are amazing things.

Hi TheTruthSeeker; There's another way to make money with letters like that. Just send out a bunch of letters with predictions on a bunch of stocks.

You might as well send out predictions that they're gonna crash as well. And why bother with the microcaps. Use the big names, stocks you couldn't possibly be pumping.

After 90 days, you'll have made brilliant predictions on at least some of those letters. Heck, why bother with only sending one letter from each purported company to each mailing label. Create maybe 4 newsletters and send out contradictory predictions from each.
