It does not take very long when trading penny stocks (especially if you hang around on Twitter, Facebook, message boards, etc.) until you come across the tried and true “stock pick” scam. While it is most prevalent in the world of penny stocks, the concept still holds true for stocks on any exchange. In this Quick Tip lesson I expose how this scam works and why the majority of people will lose money, particularly those who are brand new to the market.

Charlie “Chucky” Smyt says:

Or called a pump and dumb stock. If you can ride the wave it's good but best to get in and make 5-10 % if at all and just get out.

DAhil Mase (DahilMazter) says:

So can't you just short the stock then?

Cali Love says:

Great video! Currently watching an exact duplicate P.A.D. type stock right now where they have done everything you mention here, PLUS one more thing that made no sense…. The stock ticker symbol changed mid week, with a 5th letter added, before quickly going back to a 4 letter symbol. What kind of advantage does that give a pump and dump penny stock scam?

William Lee says:

Thanks for your videos! Locked in my profits based on your videos…. I actually saw someone bashing you a bit on IHUB saying it was your groups fault that the stock wasn't moving up, which sent me a signal to get out lol definitely knew I was sitting in the Lying zone.. Already had profits since I came in @ trip 0's  .. sold at.0028… when I think of it I I think I should've sold it when I was up $800 at .0040 a couple weeks back..but I got emotional/greedy and was waiting for the .01 run… Thanks again for the vids helps out a lot.
