STKO - fake 8K - just when you've

STKO - fake 8K - just when you've thought you've seen it all.
I've seen fake bankruptcy documents, fake Nevada business entity filings, fake websites, fake emails mimicking the most popular penny stock promoters, but this might be the first time I've seen a fake otcmarkets website set up to host a fake 8K to pump a sub-penny POS stock.
Monday a fake TBX email went out announcing STKO as the next TBX pick. The stock price jumped up over 150% that day on the fake promotion.
TBX announcing that they were not promoting STKO around 2:30 pm that same afternoon.
Today a fake PennyStockHeroes email went out to some penny stock investors pumping STKO and touting a merger with a major company, Colgate-Palmotive Co.
It's a fake 8K look at the first part of the link - otcmarket.info
otcmarket.info is not a real site
it was registered as a domain on October 7, 2012 by a private proxy
Created On:07-Oct-2012 22:35:47 UTC
Last Updated On:08-Oct-2012 02:36:18 UTC
Expiration Date:07-Oct-2013 22:35:47 UTC
The owner of the domain wisely has it redirected to the official otcmarkets.com site, but that doesn't make the 8k any less fake
just like the fake TBX emails and the fake Victory Mark emails
somebody is going to go down hard for this scam -- very hard.
Here are the real filings for Colgate Palmotive Co
No 8K there
Or here if you want to see the real Otcmarkets.com filings for Colgate-Palmotive Co
No 8K there
This 8K is Fake and the SEC and Colgate-Palmotive Co will both be informed.
I have a very good idea who is running this fake illegal pump&dump on STKO. They ran fake promos on a few other tickers in the past including AQNM

And GKNI (see comments)
This poster did a good job tracking the GKNI fake emails to their source

And information is now coming out about how they are getting email addresses to spam with these fake promo emails
Maybe this link should be taken seriously?
