Pump and Dump
"Pump and dump" schemes have two parts. In the first, promoters try to boost the price of a stock, typically in a microcap company, with false or misleading statements about the company. Once the stock price has been pumped up, the promoters seek to profit by selling their own holdings of the stock, dumping shares into the market, which typically causes the stock price to collapse.
