Best Practices for Using the Net: Confronting the Chat Room Pox

  • Ralph A. Rieves

Abstract

In chapter 5, we advised you to be vigilant about “pump and dump” schemes. With the internet these schemes can be implemented easily by unscrupulous brokers and criminals using chat rooms and message boards. Just as insidious are the dialogues in chat rooms and on message boards where the goal may not be chicanery but just passing on unattributed gossip. Some of this “stuff” (our editor’s more delicate ‘s’ word) may not be part of a “pump and dump” operation. Nevertheless, inaccurate information gets out there and can be critically wounding to your company’s reputation.
