Penny-Stock Pump And Dump Text Spam

And so it has begun. We always knew that some day the spammers would find a way to use our precious mobile phones against us. And that day was yesterday, when our good friend Meghan got spammed with penny-stock promotion. (Hey it's Judson) Thick as a brick you cannot sit this trade out, check [redacted ticker symbol] and it will surprise you.

We're not even sure that means. "Thick as a brick?" And what does it mean to "sit this trade out" when there is no actual trade named. Just a ticker symbol. Are we supposed to short it. Also, "it will surprise you" seems just about the worst way to recommend stock we can imagine. Are you looking for more risk in your life? You should totally do something with this stock.
