Can anyone explain why this thread

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/spread-betting-cfds/179332-market-manipulation.html

Has been copied (poorly) with names changed here

http://www.brokerreviewer.com/forum...e-cfds-brokers/26170-market-manipulation.html

i.e. alexis.pwnge is Mycroft Algoman, Liquid Validity is Rainbow, I have been given the moniker MorganSharpe.

I realise there are sites which copy forum threads exactly and archive sites too, but giving everyone new names and me a dodgy photo of a balding fat guy in sunglasses seems weird. :cool:

Mr Sharpe, perhaps someone like mr SB, has created a fake forum with fake members in order to complete the biggest scam of all, though is clearly too lazy to create fresh content. Its been done before (not trading related though).

That's a bit worrying Palattine2255. What happened when it was done before?

not directly comparable - & still to be proven whether it was the owners or hackers, but outlines how controlling the whole environment (forum / market place / whatever) could be v fruitful....

http://www.businessinsider.com/220-million-sheep-marketplace-bitcoin-theft-chase-2013-12

though the above scam was done on the darknet still doesnt mean that its inconceivable on the transparent www - so many scam sites exist untroubled & anonymous.

...but perhaps more plausible - the copied posts were just to generate conversation/footfall/ad clicks etc?
