American Heritage International Inc. (OTC:AHII) is a name that I believe is currently the target of a penny stock promotion scheme. It is my view that the stock's intrinsic value is somewhere near $0, and it is with conviction that I recommend that any investors currently in the name sell the entirety of their stakes immediately. Today's morning weakness could be a signal that the dump is near. I also believe that American Heritage International Inc. is a stock definitely worth shorting. My track record of identifying and publicly exposing such highly overvalued equities is excellent:
American Heritage "America's Original E-Cig™" is a publicly traded company that manufactures, distributes and sells the American Heritage™ brand of disposable premium electronic cigarettes. American Heritage is currently in an advantageous position to become one of the leaders in the fast growing electronic cigarette industry.
American Heritage's disposable premium electronic cigarettes have combined authentic, true to life flavor with a soft filter, which has pushed it to the forefront in terms of genuine look, feel and taste.
All of American Heritage's ingredients are food grade quality and 100% produced in America for a safer and more enjoyable experience than the majority of its competitors can provide.
Little Revenue. Debts. No Business. Bright Future?
As is usually the case with these types of hyped-up scams, it takes only one quick glance at the balance sheet to realize that the $152M market capitalization that this equity commands is beyond ludicrous. With $32,897 in total current assets and $75,936 in current liabilities in recent quarters, it is clear it is not going in the right direction. It's my suspicion that the purpose of this company is not to succeed, but to sell stock. The recent volume is due to overly bullish promotional mailers.
Picture of $AHII Chart
You can see that trading in American Heritage International Inc. started seeing really big increased volume on March 18, 2014. American Heritage International Inc. was being promoted via emails and the online landing page for months. It was only recently when a nice hard mailer started hitting people's homes. A simple Twitter search, and you can see multiple people reporting to have gotten the hard mailer March 18, 2013. Coincidence with the time of the hard mailer and increased volume in American Heritage International Inc.? Absolutely not.

"NationalFutures.com received a twenty-five thousand dollar editorial fee Rui Long International Inc has paid or expects to pay upwards of $1,643,756 as a total production budget"
You can see obviously someone is interested in increasing public awareness for American Heritage International Inc. Most likely the insiders, who have 63,000,000 free trading shares in American Heritage International Inc. Why else would someone spend $1,643,756 to increase public awareness? At these levels, those are worth $88,000,000! It is worth it to them, because if they can bring in buyers and liquidate their shares around these prices, that can mean millions in profits! Running pump and dump schemes is a lucrative business, and that is why we see it way too often. My job is to wake you up.

Recent SEC Halts
The SEC is finally cracking down on pump and dumps lately. Here is a list of big stock promotions that have been halted recently. I believe American Heritage International Inc. has a chance to be next. I found it funny that another company has the same exact seed shareholders as American Heritage International Inc. That company is Colorado Gold Mines, Inc. That saw a Stock Psycho stock promotion. They may be using the same people to hold shares and dump them. With the hard mailer fully out there in the public, I believe the halt risk has increased for American Heritage International Inc. Stocks that get halted tend to reopen 2 weeks later down 70%+. My latest report on Imogo Mobile Technologies Corp. was halted five trading days after my report was published. Makism 3D Corp. and Life Stem Genetics were two pumps that halted after my articles, as well.
- Imogo Mobile Technologies Corp. (OTC:IMTC) halted February 19, 2014.
- Centor Energy, Inc. (OTCPK:CNTO) halted February 11, 2014
- Makism 3D Corp. (OTCPK:MDDD) halted December 13, 2013.
- Guar Global Ltd. (OTC:GGBL) halted December 6, 2013.
- Nevada Gold Corp. (OTC:NVGC) halted November 27, 2013
- Life Stem Genetics Inc. (OTC:LIFS) halted November 25, 2013
- Sovereign Lithium (OTC:SLCO) halted November 15, 2013
If you own shares of this company, get out now. Do not hope that you can hang on to sell them to a greater fool. These shares are worthless. I have showed you that the reason for the promotional mailers indicates that the individuals behind this stock scam are trying desperately to unload their worthless shares onto the unsuspecting public and book a huge profit before the inevitable collapse. If you are a more sophisticated investor and can get a borrow on these shares, then I believe that shorting this name will be highly lucrative for you. In this stage of the promotion, with the stock halt risk, it is not worth staying long overnight to make $.05-$.10 more in gains when there is a risk of 70% in losses.
It's the same story with all the John Person's past hard mailers, why would American Heritage International Inc. be any different?
I contacted the company with my concerns, and I am waiting to hear back.
