I'd like to hear him elaborate on the nature of the fraud, although, from what I understand, if someone on the inside is doing a deal to short your stock, you are f**ked any which way you turn.
If enough people have a vested interest in your stock value falling, it's gonna fall. All it takes is a few rumors after hours in the bars and clubs and whorehouses.
Short selling should be banned forever. It's evil and breaks companies, as we have seen in the last 18 months during the financial crises.
