Pump and dump spam: Incapta Inc (INCT)

It's been a long time since I've seen a pump-and-dump spam run illegally pushing a stock as hard as this:

From:
To:
Date:    20 March 2017 at 09:30
Subject:    This stock is about to receive a buy out at 10 times its current market price...

Dear Subscriber,

It's been a long time since I sent you my special newsletter containing a hot stock tip.
The reason for that is because I really haven't had many opportunities to present to you.

Incapta Inc (ticker: INCT) is a company that was brought to my attention earlier this morning
by one of my colleagues at an M&A firm in manhattan.

It seems that a buy out from DJI is imminent at $1.37 per share and is set to be announced
next week on Tuesday, March 28.

INCT is a company that has revolutionized the drone industry by creating the first independent drones
that can be dispatched to areas of interest such as crime scenes, car chases, wild fires, etc.

The network of drones operates by connecting to a cloud and complex algorithms efficiently dispatch the drones
within moments of an incident being reported.

This way the media outlet that owns the drones can be the first to the scene and get exclusive, live-streamed.

This has the potential to literally change the world of news broadcasting as we know it and DJI
(the most prominent drone-maker in the world) sees the potential of this technology which is why
they are willing to pay $1.37 a share to acquire it. A premium of over 1,000% over Friday's closing price.

Tell all your friends about INCT and make sure you buy it as soon as possible today at any price under
20 cents a share to guarantee yourself massive profits.
This company has millions of dollars worth of expenditure and almost zero income [source].


Towards the end of 2015, the stock was valued at $31,350 a share (!) but is now worth about 13 cents [source].

The spam is being sent from a botnet to random addresses. I have no evidence to suggest that Incapta Inc is behind this, but this commentary at InvestorsHub is not flattering.

Pump and dump spam like this is a criminal activity, and typically companies being promoted in this way are in terminal decline (but not always). Avoid buying stocks on the recommendation of criminals.

[UPDATE] This company has some form, previously it was known as GameZnFlix and then TBC Global News Network.

UPDATE 1

A second version of the spam is going around..

From:
To:
Date:    20 March 2017 at 17:11
Subject:    You can make 10x on your money by next week if you buy this stock now.

Dear Subscriber,

Do you remember the last time I sent you a tip about a company worth buying in the market?

I was right on point as its shares shot up more than tenfold in under 7 days.
I had privileged information and I knew that something big was brewing.

It took me months to find the next stock that is somewhat similar to that last one I told you about,
but you can be certain that the upside potential is just as good.

Incapta Incorporated [symbol: INCT] is a company that is on the verge of being acquired by a large drone-maker competitor.

On March 28th (yes, next week) there is going to be something special announced that will take the share price from under 0.20 to over a dollar, overnight.

INCT specializes in the manufacturing of high-end specialized drones with real-world applications such as automated dispatching for news coverage by companies like CNN all the way to miniature drones which can be used to gather intelligence for the military, private investigators and police.

This cutting edge technology is changing the world as we know it, and INCT is at the forefront of it all which is why it’s being acquired and its share price is about to go ballistic.

Tell everyone you know to buy INCT right now and keep it on the low as much as possible.
UPDATE 2

Third version..

From:
To:
Date:    21 March 2017 at 07:17
Subject:    Find out now why this company is going up tenfold by this time next week.

Dear profit seeker,

It’s been quite some time since I sent you information about a stock worth buying, but the last time I did the shares soared more than 15x.

This means that if you had put in just a grand you would have gotten 15k out of it when all is said and done.

Even if you only get 2 or 3 tips from me per year, all of them are guaranteed winners because I base my recommendations on knowing privileged information.

I don’t want you to miss out again so keep on reading to find out which company is going up 1,000% by this time next Tuesday.

Incapta Inc [tickersymbol: INCT] is about to be entirely acquired by an enormous multibillion dollar corporation.

On the 28 of March you can expect to see a public announcement made which will outline the details of this acquisition with the most important detail being the price at somewhere around $1.40

This means if you buy and hold INCT right now you’ll have a guaranteed profit of a thousand percent.

INCT is a company which has built “cloud droning”. That’s basically the ability for drones to have their own mind as they connect to a network of artificial intelligence and work with each other autonomously.

It is for example possible to set up a feature to dispatch them whenever there is a car accident somewhere in order to be the first on the scene. There are also endless military applications for these drones as the company has been in talks with the US Army for months already.

Please keep this information to yourself, don’t tell your friends or family to buy the stock now. This is exclusive to my subscribers only.

Cheers.
UPDATE 3

Another variant. Incidentally, this appears to originate from the Necurs Botnet which has also pushed Locky and Dridex in the past.

From:
To:
Date:    21 March 2017 at 14:06
Subject:    Here is your chance to buy shares that will go up 10x by next week.

To all my subscribers,

As you obviously know, I have been quiet these last couple of months because I really have not had a stock worth recommending for purchase.

After the last stock’s 1,500% gains I really want to make sure that whatever I tell you to buy next will be a big winner since your expectations are high.

Today I want you to keep an eye on INCT (incapta inc) because something really huge is about to happen next week.

One of the gents I work with back in New York told me that INCT is on the verge of signing a deal to sell the company to a large multinational and this deal should be announced on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week and will carry a price per share of $1.38

I guess their special drone technology is too good to ignore, and a massive player wants to acquire all their know-how, IP and manufacturing capabilities.

That being said, this is a very rare opportunity to get in before the deal is officially announced and make a quick 10x on your principal in just 7 days.

Keep this on the low but do act quickly if you want to buy in. I recommend an entry point of 17 cents or under to maximize the upside.

All the best.

UPDATE 4

Another variant. The last time I looked, this spam run had persuaded people to buy more than six million shares in this company, which in my personal opinion appear to be worthless. There are only around 100 million shares, so this seems like a fair chunk.

From:
To:
Date:    22 March 2017 at 08:08
Subject:    This public company is being bought out. Read now to profit from it.

Dear valued member,

It has been a very long time since I emailed you about a rare investment opportunity.

You signed up to my newsletter because you were seeking to only invest in companies which I can guarantee will go up and I only email you when I know one will.

The last stock I told you to buy went up about 1000% and this next one is guaranteed a solid 1300% keep on reading to find out why.

INCT (incapta inc) is a drone-maker with proprietary algorithms which essentially bring drones to life. These algorithms give the drones the capability to act independent of a physical operator.

Because of they own this amazing technology which they developed in house, they have been receiving huge attention from the US Army as well as several private firms including DJI and Amazon.

A guy I work with at a mergers and acquisition firm in New York told me that INCT is about to be bought out for $1.37 per share on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. He has always come through for me.

While INCT may currently seem stagnant, that’s because very few people know about this imminent deal so don't let that fool you.

I don't expect the stock price to swing much in either direction until the takeover is announced next week, at which point it will shoot up to around $1.37 overnight.

You know what to do if you want to profit when this happens.

Keep it on the hush, but do act quickly.

Best Regards,
Viola Haney

UPDATE 5

Another variant. So far over 12 million shares have been traded although the stock price has slumped 47% since yesterday. This is over 10% of the company that has been traded, bringing in around $140,000 for whoever holds them (and in my opinion the shares are worth nothing at all).

Subject:    Read Now: Why this company’s shares are guaranteed to soar next week.

Howdy,

We haven't communicated in a while and you might be wondering why I'm emailing you now out of the blue but it's because I have something very special to share with you.

Remember this last company I told you to buy a few months ago? It jumped around 1000% in like two weeks if you recall.

I've got another one of those to share with you today and you could make some serious profits with it if you buy it now.

INCT (incapta inc) is a high technology company that's got some very special and unique drone systems. In fact, their stuff in so interesting that even the United States government has taken notice of it.
Anyway I won't bore you with the details, so the reason why I am telling you about INCT is because a buy out is imminent.
A gentleman I've known for almost a decade now who works out of an m&a company in manhattan told me that on March 28 INCT will be bought out by a large corporation at a price of $1.38 a share.

The stock is down today (these things happen), but it's absolutely meaningless and shouldn't scare you in any way, shape or form because once the buy out is announced, this stock is going to shoot up to 1.38 in a matter of minutes which is essentially guaranteed gains of about 1400% from current prices.

The stock is down because some investors are selling. It must be that they haven't heard the news, and they will be feeling very stupid next week when the announcement is made public.

Keep this on the low and feel free to buy as many shares as you possibly can right now.

Take care,
Vivian Rogers

UPDATE 6

12.7 million shares have now been traded, out of 100 million shares in total. Who actually holds this much stock in Incapta, Inc? According to SEC filings.. one person. Amusingly, the spammers forgot to mention the actual stock they were pushing..

From:
To:
Date:    23 March 2017 at 08:07
Subject:    I've got strong reasons to believe that this stock is about to soar.

Alright, let's get right to it...

We've been out of touch for a while. I've been very busy looking for the next big stock that has the potential to explode and it took me months to find one.

If I can be honest, this one came to me as a god send. I got lucky. I have this friend who works at a law firm in NYC and we've known each other for a very long time.

Long story short, he told me that his firm is about to finalize a big takeover by a multibillion corporation. They're buying this tiny company that is now trading at just around 10 cents a share.

I couldn't believe my ears when I heard him say that they're paying somewhere between $1.30 and $1.39 for the company. The deal is closing and being announced mid next week.

I could get into what the company does, but who really cares right? All we need to know is that they are in the high tech industry and that this is going to be a huge buyout.

I recommend you buy shares as soon as possible today and wait it out until you get paid over $1.30 next week. The way takeovers work is that they will just credit this price per share, in cash, to your brokerage account and in exchange will take the shares that you bought at just pennies.

I may never have another tip like this, so cash in on it while you still can.
UPDATE 7

Another version pushing this (in my personal opinion) worthless stock. So far about 15 million of the apparently 100 million shares in this company have been traded, bringing SOMEBODY in more that $1.5m in cash. The profit they are getting depends on how much they paid of course.

From:

Subject:    Allow me to share something profitable with you today.

If you're wondering why I'm emailing you now, out of the blue, after months of radio silence let me tell you that I have a good reason for that.

Do you remember the last time I sent you a tip? It was around November if I recall correctly.

If you bought that stock I told you about back then, you would've quadrupled your money at the very least.

Now here we are, a few months later and I've got something else to tell you about.

Basically if you remember, I've got a good acquaintance who works at a law firm in New York and when I took him out to a fancy steak dinner last Monday (with lots of wine) he became very talkative and let me in on a little tip.

This is what I want to share with you today. He essentially told me that some time mid next week, a small company called incapta (ticker: INCT) is going to announce that it's being acquired by a giant for a little over 1.30 a share (yes over a dollar thirty, and yes it's at just under 15 cents now)

He knows this because his law firm is the one that drafted all the paperwork for the deal and they are expected to finalize and sign the agreements today, with the official announcement coming some time between Tuesday and Thursday.

If you buy shares today, you are guaranteed to make approximately tenfold next week. The way it works is if you're holding the shares they will just take them out of your account automatically and credit you with the cash equivalent to 1.37 or so which you can take out whenever you want and spend on nice things.

Keep me in mind when you're rolling in it. I expect a big thank you and maybe a small gift!
UPDATE 8

InCapta's CEO, John Fleming, issued a statement denying that the firm had anything to do with this "newsletter" (actually a massive, illegal spam run)

SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 23, 2017 / InCapta, Inc. (OTC PINK: INCT) announced today that it has been made aware of and requested by the OTC Markets Group, Inc. to comment on recent trading and promotional activity concerning INCT common stock.

Yep, I got this yesterday, from 2 different parties. Thought it was BS. You verified it.

I am getting return emails like this. They are somehow using my domain to send it. At least I think so because the return email is Combs97904@MY_DOMAIN.COM. I've looked through cpanel and can't find any evidence of accounts or anything. Maybe they are sending it through my gmail, but I don't see any "sent" messages. All I have are the Mail Delivery Subsystem messages to go off of. What should I do?

TZ-Security said...

Definitely botnet spam. I have accounts with 100+ joined penny stocks promoters and pumpers, absolutely none of them is pumping this stock.

TZ-Security said...

@ David Moritz - those are "spoofed" emails, they can put anything they want like a sender. Kids are pranking each other with emails from FBI and whitehouse, for example.

Like David, above, I'm getting a lot of backscatter, as the scammer is spoofing a bunch of addresses at my domain. Hopefully this'll be over soon.
