When scamming Puda Coal halted trading in Aug 2011, pending a SEC investigation,  the board was full of panicking shorts. They were so worried that following the halt, an announcement was going to be made that the company was going to buy back all the shares. Most of them didn't know how they were going to cover.I've never seen so many scared investors. Shorting GWG is extremely risky and I have a feeling many will get caught with their 'shorts' down lol.
