More on April Fools Stock Hoaxes

from the silly-people dept

Salon has posted a more detailed story, concerning a web hoax that was discussed here. Combine this, with the recent Australian tech stock hoax, and there's certainly a trend. However, I find it interesting that the suckers in these cases are freaking out and trying to instigate lawsuits to cover up their stupidity. This is not a good sign. It shows that due diligence and actually understanding what your investing in is becoming less and less important.
