I never get tired of stories about stock pump-and-dump schemes. Every one of these tales is as hilarious as it is nefarious, and the creativity of the pumpers can be pretty high. WPThatcher recently received a fax touting bulletin-board stock Superlattice Power and wrote about it on his blog. Check out his take.
And that's our roundup for this week. Be sure to check back next week for more great blogging action. In the meantime, why not head over to CAPS and add your two cents to the community pool?
