They’re back! Stock Castle, spam stock promoter, now pumping LSE:AIM listed Mercom Oil

Stock Castle (which is how we traders refer to this spam stock promoter even though they have used a huge number of different websites and names) is back, this time promoting a London AIM exchange-listed company, Mercom Oil (MMO:L). Most recently Stock Castle promoted USGT. Stock Castle is a spammer that has been sued by penny stock gadfly George Sharp; prior to USGT they promoted BRND, IDOI, and MSTG.

I cannot remember the last time I saw a British stock pumped — German and Canadian pumps have been far more common (although German pumps are much less common than they used to be), although the US OTCBB and OTCMarkets remain the most popular place to run pump and dumps. Mercom is interesting also because it has had a lot of volume over the past few months.

I will most likely not trade Mercom Oil, although I subscribed to LSE quotes at Interactive Brokers for a month (only $7.50 so worth it). Mercom is not currently shortable at Interactive Brokers.
