Excerpt from disclaimers:
This is a paid advertisement by Eric Dany and/or Eric Dany’s Stock Prospector (collectively, “EDSP”). EDSP has received $10,000 from Full Service Media, LLC in compensation for this advertisement to enhance public awareness of Norstra Energy, Inc. (hereafter “NORX”).
Third Party Advertiser/Advertising Agency IMPORTANT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER: Arista Theme Ltd., the third party advertiser, has paid $426,035 USD to Full Service Media, LLC (FSM) as of April 2, 2013 for this advertising effort in an effort to build investor awareness. FSM shall retain any amounts over and above the cost of creating and distributing this email advertisement which advertises Eric Dany’s Stock Prospector Newsletter coverage of Norstra Energy, Inc., Advertising services include; production, outsourced advertising copywriting services, mailing and other related distribution services and advertising media placement costs. Arista Theme Ltd., the third party advertiser, is a company based in Tortula, BVI. Arista Theme Ltd., the third party advertiser, has represented to FSM in writing that it is not a current shareholder of Norstra Energy, Inc. and that neither it nor its affiliates will buy or sell any shares of Norstra Energy, Inc. during the period that this advertisement is being disseminated by FSM third party media vendors.
One interesting thing is the disclosure that the party that paid for the advertising, Arista Theme Ltd., has no shares of NORX. My hunch is that Arista Theme Ltd. is just a shell company created for the sole purpose of funneling money to the stock promoters from the person or entity that holds the shares so that they can hide their identity. People don’t pay for large stock promotions out of the goodness of their hearts. I have no evidence to support this belief.
