Phoenix Pump & Dump Schemes Attorney
Cases of pump & dump or stock manipulation have a long history in Arizona and often affect thousands of people. Our Phoenix stock manipulation attorneys are more than familiar with a variety of ways that dishonest stockbrokers or other parties may manipulate the value of stock for their own gain. Similar to a Ponzi scheme and other types of stockbroker fraud, the investor is often kept in the dark about the real value of a stock. The Internet has created a new environment for such schemes:
- Shell companies are used to send spam email to make stocks seem more valuable and invite investment
- Multiple websites may be used to make a stock look more valuable and popular than it truly is
- Emails are used to encourage investment on “this great new stock before it’s too late”
- Misled investors purchase the stock and its value is artificially “pumped” up
- The source of the pump then dumps their stock and leaves investors with valueless stock
