A seller’s pricing of an asset at an unusually low price, such as penny stocks or the opening price at auctions, with the express intention of attracting as many bidders as possible. – Conspicuously low prices should be viewed with suspicion, because offers on the Internet are often cheap copies of securities or stolen items. Regular case law (settled case-law; judicature) assumes that if there is a recognizable discrepancy between the value or performance and the price – especially in the case of the forced liquidation of assets frequently offered in Internet forums – the buyer is guilty of dealing in stolen goods, which is punishable under criminal law. – The lowest price of a security. – See cheap copy, headline hysteria, price plunge, panic selling, shock, external, sell out, junk securities.
