08 Jul A deeper look at The Financier Times
I decided to take a little bit closer look at the promoter that is currently promoting Sanborn Resources (SANB). Starting today, July 8, 2013, The Financier Times started promoting SANB showing a $3 million budget.
Previous promotions by The Financier Times included NHUR which had a very similar disclaimer:
Both SANB and NHUR have similar share structures as shown in the chart near the bottom of this report.
We have already definitively linked The Financier Times and Billionaire Stocks to the Hack the Stock Market team. Other new sites by this group include:
So far we have not seen billionaire stocks or any of the other sister sites come out with any awareness. NHUR saw several email alerts done by Billionaire Stocks pointing to The Financier Times article.
Digging a little deeper into the SANB article we see the author is somebody named Anthony Scopel. The picture of Anthony is ridiculously small, but it didn't take much digging to learn more about Mr. Scopel.
Mr. Scopel is from Fort Myers, Florida. Here is his facebook page.
Mr. Scopel used to work for Ricoh Americas Corporation until 2012. Since that time he has been a free lance writer for hire. If you are looking to hire Mr. Scopel the best place to get in touch with him is through his elance.com page where he goes by the name Anthony S. with the header "You, Me, and the Dock" or just "umatd" for short.
Here is a look at his resume:
So Mr. Scopel is just a writer for hire. At least this time Hack the Stock Market has found a real person to use as their "author".
Below could be the ad that Mr. Scopel replied to which has now made him the new face of the Hack the Stock Market group. Basically the group was just looking for a name and face to put on their pre-written articles.
And to close this report below is a review of past promotions done by the Hack the Stock Market group originally created by the Hunter twins from the UK:
Hack the Stock Market is sort of a crossover between an email spam promoter, landing page promoter, and internet ad promoter.
Originally started by the Hunter twins (Thomas and Alex) as Doubling Stocks this penny stock promotion franchise evolved into Hack the Stock Market and recently has evolved again into the Financier Times and Billionaire Stocks.
Besides their stock promotion business, the Hunter twins were also involved in selling books and software with promises to make investors rich. They were also famous for making up fake names (like Jason Kelly, Michael Cohen and John Bell) to help sell their products and promote their stocks. In April of 2012, the Hunter twins got busted by the SEC for the stock picking robot scam, but their promotion company lives on.
