[Dshield] Is this common : Fake stock spam ?

Hi list ...

This is the first time I have received spam that tries to promote a
certain stock. I'm sure it's from a company that's about to go bankrupt
(hence the 0.02c per share) or a completely non existing company. How
can they get a non existing company onto the stock market though ??

The nice detail here is that they ask you to do a search on the company
name 'Spooz', which actually brings up some sites with info, but none of
them show that the company actually has a product for sale (you can't
order it anywhere). The product page is nothing more then an animated
gif. It reminds me of the movie 'Boiler room', where a whole room full
of agents were trained to sell fake stocks, to bring the price of the
stock up (create fake demand) after which they would dump their shares
for a better price, making their clients stock worthless. The stock
would never recover since there was no actual product behind the
company.

Has anybody seen this before ?
