Uru Metals – shares ramped up on US OTC Spoof, John Zorbas is 'avin' a Turkish
Luckily those attracted to owning shares in joke John Zorbas company URU Metals (URU) have the collective IQ of a cheese sandwich so they fell for the spoof. But spoof it is. As Nigel pointed out when Uru snuck out dire results on New Year’s Eve, Uru is almost certainly running on vapours with a death spiral to convert outstanding debt kicking in at 85p. Thus, a share price of 200p (up 17% on the spoof) is insane.
