New Wall Street Report pump and dump: Petroterra Corp $PTRA

Starting after the market close last Friday, WallStreetReport.org started sending emails promoting Petroterra Corp (PTRA). The emails continues yesterday (Monday) and today. The emails linked to a video at http://wallstreetreport.org/wrp1/ptsv34332.php and to a landing page promoting PTRA here: http://wallstreetreport.org/wrp1/ptsw34332.php

WallStreetReport.org is a relatively new stock promotion website and I have only been subscribed to them since August. The only other stock they have promoted to me was BLKG, starting on August 11th and continuing off and on until September 3rd.

Petroterra was previously pumped via a different online landing page back in late March of this year. That first landing page is still online and it looks like the new landing page copies many of the elements of the first one. The volume so far this time is much higher than the volume back in March. In July PTRA shares had a 1 for 2.5 reverse split, so the current price of 1.20 is equivalent to a price back in March of $0.48.

Disclosed budget: $150,000
Promoter:  WallStreetReports.org / Herwick Ltd.
Paying party: Mass Peak Ltd.
Shares outstanding: 26,888,850
Previous closing price: $1.12
Market capitalization: $30 million
