The following is an e-mail I got back after reporting some pumper e-mails I got to the SEC, one of those junk penny stocks that shouldnt be listed in the first place. If you get them you should forward them to te SEC as well if they are obviously pumping something, too mayn gullible people get scammed.

Dear Sir or Madam: Thank you for your recent e-mail to the group electronic mailbox of the Division of Enforcement at the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.

Even though I won't buy it, what was the stock? Also, did you go to the Mad Money main event? I was recently in the audience of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?. Those contestants didn't know that the GREEN party nominated Ralph Nader. The episodes will air Feb. 8-10 on ABC.
