CFO Sends Message to Beware of New Illegal Trend
OREM, Utah--(Business Wire)--
In a recent text messaging scam, selected individuals around the
United States have received a text message promoting ZYTO Corp stock
(Pink Sheets: ZYTC) and requesting that the recipient purchase its
stock. "This type of text message is illegal and ZYTO is not involved
in its sending," said Kami Howard, Chief Financial Officer. "These
messages are neither solicited nor condoned by ZYTO Corp." According
to Howard, the text message is sent by an unknown third party. "We are
attempting to find the source of the messages and have them stopped.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our investors,
vendor partners, employees or any individual who has received these
unsolicited messages."

   Unfortunately, this type of scam is not new. "This could be what
is commonly known as a 'pump and dump' scheme where scamming parties
will purchase the stock of a company and then try to artificially
inflate the price of the stock through a vigorous and misleading
advertising campaign," said Howard. If enough investors purchase a
given stock based on the misleading advertising campaign the stock
price could be artificially increased. These scamming parties then
sell the stock at the manipulated price thus potentially causing an
artificial price decrease.

   "It could also be part of a scheme whereby short sellers of our
stock perpetrate the scam to discredit our company in the eyes of
investors and thereby encourage a sell-off," she said. Either practice
is in contravention of United States law 15 U.S.C. ss. 78(j) which
prohibits manipulative and deceptive practices in regards to
securities. ZYTO has been proactive about this news and has reported
what it knows to the SEC.

   Howard noted that consumers should be mindful of this new tactic
that offers great deals on "hot stock" purchases over their cell
phone. Most calls come from "unknown" contacts which should be the
consumer's first "heads-up" that the information may not be credible.

   ZYTO Corp. was founded by Dr. Vaughn Cook, OMD. The company
provides decision support technology focused on the healthcare market.
