Cloudtag IR stunning own goal - anyone want an email list of morons - I now have it

By Tom Winnifrith, The Sheriff of AIM | Thursday 16 March 2017

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

This morning AIM , for now listed, fraud Cloudtag (CTAG) had an announcement which was comical and is torn to shreds by me HERE. But it gets better, it sent an alert to all those folks who had registered with it to receive alerts. Then panic stations....

Investors would like to recall the message, "Shareholder Update".

The reason is that Cloudtag had disclosed the email addresses of all those on the list. Furious round robin emails followed with punters terrified that the bears could get hold of this or worse still that I might. Of course Winnileaks got a copy.

I have the email and all the names starting with ciaran.xxxxxxx etc etc.

I am sorely tempted to flog them to Nigerian fraudsters as this must be a list of some of the most gullible folks in Britain. But i am a nice guy so will not be passing on any of the details. These folk have suffered enough already. As for Cloudtag, being incompetent and breaching DPA rules is the least of the problems the fraud faces.
