Scheme to manipulate trading volume and price of now defunct Virginia-based 8000 Inc.'s common stock. Defendant was CEO and disseminated financial reports and press releases falsely claiming millions of dollars in capital financing and revenues. Volume of trading rose by 93% and stock price went from less than $0.01 per share to $0.42 per share. Defendant then sold or facilitated the sale of stock (which should have been restricted) under these managed, artificial conditions.
