Article Body:
Junk email, spam, is getting worse than ever. Even with an anti-spam
filter, some junk emails that show up in the inbox are disgusting,
deceptive, and aimed to con you out of your money. In addition to
traditional spam emails promoting medication, mortgage, pornography, new
ones such as stock scams are growing. The deceptive and unsolicited
nature of these e-mails qualifies them as spam.

Stock scams, combined with traditional spam techniques, can cause a
significant financial loss to victims of these swindles.

You might have noticed that many spams are touting a particular stock.
These touts are sometimes made as part of a Pump and Dump scheme. Pump-
and-dump scams are email campaigns which encourage people to invest in a
particular company's stock, in order to quickly inflate its value and
enable the spammers to make a fast profit. It is thought that these scams
take place unbeknown to the company involved. The purpose of the pump-
and-dump stock spam is to quickly and cheaply disperse false information
about a company's stock, along with information obtained from recent
press releases, to potential investors. Usually this is a slimly traded
stock on a small exchange for only pennies a share.

By implying that recipients of spam emails are in possession of
privileged information - such as news of an acquisition before a general
announcement - spammers seek to persuade the gullible into purchasing
particular stocks. If a significant enough number of easily-led
individuals invest in the touted stock, a spammer can ramp up the share
price so that existing shareholders can sell their shares at a profit.
But when the fraudsters dump their shares, and then stop advertising the
stock, the price often falls, and investors ultimately lose their cash.

What to do if you get spammed? How not to become a victim of stock scams?
The first thing you can to protect yourself against stock scams on the
Internet and against spam on the whole is to setup an anti-spam filter,
which will filter your messages before you receive them into your inbox.
Most pump-and-dump spam emails contain the words like "stock", “invest”,
"investor reports". But to bypass spam filters, spammers can use the
variations of the word “stock” such as "st0ck" or "stox”. So, if your
inbox is flooded with penny stock tip, ignore it. Delete it. Do not
believe anyone who tells you, "Invest quickly or you will miss out on a
once-in-a lifetime opportunity." Just don't go thinking this is your big
chance to hit pay-dirt. It is sounds too good to be true. The only ones
profiting from these "spam e-mail tips" are the senders themselves - in
this case spammers.

The history of the stock market has shown that the best and most trusted
way to build wealth is to invest in high-quality businesses with
excellent growth opportunites.

Investigate before you invest. Find out who sent the message to you. Ask
whether the claims can be documented. Verify whether the claims are true
before you send a nickel of your money.

But if you yielded to temptation and became a victim pf a stock scam, you
can hire a lawyer to try to get your money back, but you need to know
that recovery is rare. Just remember that the best protection is to take
no action and stay away from bad deals in the first place.
