    Could not read the fine print, but if it is like the ones I receive, it is an attempt to defraud you by enticing you to buy a penny stock which the senders already own at a cheaper price. They hope to promote interest in the stock and drive up the price and then they dump their shares after the phoney baloney has raised the price.
    An old scam.
