This morning I received an email from Investors Alley (email@example.com) promoting Sanwire Corporation (SNWR) and linking to http://snwrbreakingnews.com/snwrreport/ This is an interesting promotion because the company itself is not only paying for the promotion but managing the promotion.
See the PDF copy of the pump page.
[Edit 2013-7-13]: The British Columbia Securities Commission has issued two separate cease trade orders (first back in May and then on July 12) on Sanwire (SNWR). The practical effect for traders outside of British Columbia is nil but I believe multiple such orders may indicate a greater chance of more serious regulatory trouble.
