Peter Schiff: Beware the NIA Penny Stock Pump & Dump


I think this is my favorite part from their (non)response.
"There is a reason why NIA's membership base is growing by leaps and bounds and far exceeds this stock broker. NIA's President spends 12 hours per day studying the economy and researching stocks. His number one goal in life is not making money for himself, but is preparing Americans for hyperinflation and helping as many Americans as possible survive and prosper during the currency crisis that is ahead."
Oh, how wonderfully selfless of you!

Reminds me of this quote from "Francisco's Money Speech" in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged:
"It’s the person who would sell his soul for a nickel, who is loudest in proclaiming his hatred of money–and he has good reason to hate it. The lovers of money are willing to work for it. They know they are able to deserve it.

“Let me give you a tip on a clue to men’s characters: the man who damns money has obtained it dishonorably; the man who respects it has earned it.

“Run for your life from any man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter."

NIA touts penny stock Mega Precious Metals based solely on its "inferred" 1.2 million ounces of gold. However, NIA knows that "inferred" resources are practically meaningless. More important, they also know that their members, not being sophisticated gold investors, have no clue what "inferred" means and they exploit that ignorance to create a false impression of value. Mega Precious Metals is Mega B.S. DO NOT BUY ANY STOCKS TOUTED BY NIA

Note: NIA responded to this video by raising a straw man. They claimed they did not "pump and dump" the stock since they did not personally sell any shares. However I never accused them of that. I alleged that a third party paid them to pump up the stock so the third party could sell their shares. The fact that they never addressed this allegation is pretty compelling evidence that it's true.

In fact, by including a disclosure that NIA did not own any shares in their original pump and dump email, they deliberately created the false impression that there was no conflict of interest behind their analysis. However, this is certainly not true if they neglected to disclose that a third party looking to dump their shares paid them to send out the email.

They also claimed that they warned their members that Mega's gold ounces were merely "inferred." That is my point --they did not warn them!. They did not define "inferred", and they counted on the fact that their members would wrongfully assume that "inferred" meant they actually had gold. That is why they fraudulently calculated the value of their "inferred" ounces based on today's gold price.

They also included a list of legitimate gold recommendation. But they only make those "suggestions" to lay the foundation for future pump and dump schemes, as NIA members cannot differentiate between their legitimate recommendations and their paid promotions.

In addition, they accused me of running a failing brokerage firm that will soon be out of business despite the fact that my business has never been better. We have more clients, more assets, more revenue, and more profits than ever. We also generally charge much lower commissions than what they claim.
