This outsourcing firm is based in India and has been involved in a billion dollar scandal involving accounting fraud. Company executives have been accused of inflating the number of employees and then stealing the employee payroll.

As might be expected this news resulted in a temporary halt in trading for several days and then there was a huge gap down when trading resumed. It should be noted that SmartStops.net gave a timely warning to unload the shares at $8.77 just two days before the trading halt and the gap down to $1.14.
