I'm going to do some study; might invest here and there in the future, however, as yet I don't know enough about it.
If you want help let me know. I have learned this isn't really a good place for advertising services but it is my profession and I can give you practical and generative advice. I also have the resources to work independently so you don't have to worry about being scammed (meaning you can use your own account or online brokers).

In my experience it is best that you learn from someone who can teach you how to learn. That is why I mention generative advice, so your not just investing in certain areas but you also take away the knowledge of how those investments work and you can apply them to any stocks/companies/other financial tools in the same or related industries. In my opinion, it is better than trial and error because you can protect yourself before you incur a loss.

With my clients, I always use the approach "If you give a man a fish... if you teach a man to fish...". That way, when things work out well it comes back around to me. This is why I can't understand these con-artist and stock scams because the hardest part of getting new business is forming the relationship and if I am in any business (with any business sense), why do I want to ruin the relationship when that is where all the hard work is??? A few decent returns on the original investment should make the consultant more money over the long run plus keep the relationship/repeat/referral business (which is the best part of the business!).

If you've been ripped off by a boilerroom scam you should check out this thread. Its a somewhat poor attempt to promote a restricted stock. No doubt part of some scam which we will no doubt learn more about in due course.

Moderator might have removed it, below is the link that outlines how many of these stocks sold by boilerrooms are related. AAPH was being promoted on T2W by someone as was CYNX - CelLynx Group, Inc

In my early trades at least I got some shares (probably worthless I now know) but I stupidly sent money for the last trade (£33,500.00) direct to a bank in Cyprus and heard no more about it - it was supposed to give a good deal on the dollar exchange. I see now their website has totally changed and shows a smiling girl instead of a more normal bank logo so presumably they have absconded with my money.
What I want to know is does anyone know this company and been ripped off by them? I assume the company has ripped off BioDefense Corp as well as they've kept the money instead of sharing it with them. Also is there any authority or body that might be worth approaching who could be useful to bring these people to justice or will they go on doing this for ever with impunity (FSA say they can't do much as it's outside the UK)?
i work for biodefense . i might be able to help you . contact me at us 1-917-239-2119

Ubulgaria

remember that every boiler room scam that rips you off will try to hit you a second time by offering to swop, sell or derestrict your 'shares' for an advance fee. Don't let them steal any more of your money no matter what they promise you. A while back bigbrains was a satisfied shareholder in biodefence now he says he's an employee who can 'help' you. He's setting you up to be scammed again.

I am a share holder and i do work with Biodefense. it is possible to be both. Biodefense is real and your shares aren't worthless. as a shareholder in Biodefense i am only trying to protect the company and its shareholders

Biodefence shares are being sold by various boiler room scammers. T2W is the wrong place to try to promote them, people here are wise to all these pump and dump posts.
