If you feel like your inbox is suddenly overrun with spam again, you are right.

Larger public companies are required to file reports with the SEC and any investor can review them for free from the SEC’s website.

In contrast, information about microcap companies can be extremely difficult to find, making them more vulnerable to investment fraud schemes.
