I recently received a mass-mailing purporting to be a free introductory issue of an investment magazine, but consisting of hyperbolic, untrammeled promotion of a penny stock. In other words, it ticked all the boxes for a blatantly obvious pump-and-dump scam.
I'm obviously not going to fall for this (not least because I haven't any money to invest in the first place), but clearly some people do or they wouldn't be profitable. So, is there some law enforcement agency to whom I can report these? Ideally before some senile retiree blows the last of his nest egg?
Or do I just shred the magazine and feel sad for the marks who don't?
