November 4, 2015: In just another example of FINRA's lax oversight of companies that exemplify quick change artistry, Friendable, Inc. (FDBL) today launched its 8th Pump & Dump campaign in 4 years. Not coincidentally, 4 is also the number of names and tickers this company has had over that period of time.
FDBL is a share selling scheme we profiled in a report last year At that time, the company had been freshly rebranded as iHookup Social, Inc. (HKUP), having spent its ability to sell shares as phony iron ore exploration entity, Titan Iron Ore Corp. (TFER). Those sucked into the TFER scheme were treated to a one for 20 reverse split. Dupes who were then dragooned into buying worthless shares of HKUP, experienced their own wiping out courtesy of a one for 100 reverse split just this past March. We all but predicted this second rollback as we showed in our previous report that there were many shares yet to be created by future debt conversion.

As HKUP, the company pretended to be involved in the online dating industry. That farce didn't last long as serious investors weren't going to be convinced that it could compete with the likes of Match and Tinder. The company soon after announced that it had acquired the "Friendable" app and with it a move into a broader friend finding product. Doesn't exactly sound like this app is going to give "Meetup" a run for its money, does it?
