Naked Shorts!

It would appear that my blog yesterday on the ‘blip’ in spam rates caused a bit of a stir yesterday. In particular the company that are the target of this particular campaign, Prime Time Group, have had to issue a NOBO Order. This evidently is a way of determining who has been investing.  ‘Naked shorts’, which may sound like a contradiction, are actually a serious issue in the world of stocks and shares.

Out of interest I just checked the spam traps, we are still seeing samples of this PDF pump and dump, and we are still seeing eCard spam linking to JSECard

I’m pleased to see that action is being taken, and hopefully the coverage that this story has received will discourage anyone tempted by this type of campaign, as stated yesterday, that is the only way to stop this sort of spam campaign.
