Spammah in da slammah

Two spammers got their sorry asses in the news in the past few days.

The first one is career spamming slime that goes by the name of Robert Soloway. He got caught by the man some time ago and on Friday 3/14 finally made a plea deal with the prosecutor. He is pleading guilty to felony mail fraud, fraud in connection with electronic mail and failing to file a tax return. Most other charges were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea. He still faces up to 20 years in prison for the fraud charge.

It’s wonderful to see scum of the earth like dear Robert in such a big mess.

And today FTC announced it’s going to fine Valueclick and its subsidiary Hi-Speed Media $2.9M for spamming and defrauding US consumers with fake free product spam ads. Go you, FTC!
