How to design a big-budget pump and dump for cheap, thanks to eLance

I have previously blogged about The Alkaline Water Co. While looking up information for that blog post I performed Google searches for many different phrases, including “Investech Equity”, “Hennesey Road Media LLC”, “MaverickReport”, and “MountStockMore”

When I searched for “MountStockMore” I found a couple eLance jobs related to the website. Clicking on the person who listed those jobs showed me that that person had listed a total of 16 jobs, resides in Canada, and had only been a member of eLance since June of this year. I have saved all the jobs and the profile overview so that they can be seen in the future in case the account and jobs are deleted (I expect that to happen soon after this is posted).

Following are some excerpts from the various job and what I learned from them.

Hmm, it looks like someone is planning on putting up some Facebook ads promoting WTER:
