TV pump-n-dump?

    Anyone else find the commercial for Connect-a-Jet somewhat odd in that after its marketing message, the advertisement concludes with a voiceover saying "Connect a Jet -- a publicly-traded company" while showing its ticker symbol on the screen? (The firm's ticker is CAJT.PK -- but they display "CAJT" during the commercial.)

    I can't remember ever seeing an ad for a public company looking like such a blatant stock pumping effort.

    Anyone have any insights or gut feelings on this practice or the company, aside from what you can see from its website?

    no, there's others that have done it as well. but i can't remember one that hasn't struck me as somewhat scammy (LIV does a similar thing)
  4. Alot of them advertise towards the end of Businessweek on occasion, every 3-4 months there is a 3-4 page spread on of them advertising.

    Very common also with Canadian mining ones- extremely OTC and .PK sheets.
  5. Everytime you buy a OTCBB or pink sheet you are supporting someone elses scam, remember that.
