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!


Robert Soloway, spamming scum extraordinaire, arrested

Spamming scum, Robert Soloway, one of the most notorious spammers actively spamming at the moment, has been arrested for various fraud related charges stemming from his spamming campaigns. He’s facing charges that if convicted would send him to prison for upto 65 years.

One can only hope.

Seattlepi.com has more on his arrest.


Up Yours, spammer scum – pt, erm, whatever

Robert Braver, an owner of a small ISP in Ohio, has made a hobby of suing spammers in violation of the Ohio state anti-spamming laws.

This time he hit the jackpot, and managed to not only get a $10M judgment against a career spammer Robert Soloway, who runs Newport Internet Marketing, but also get an injuction barring this spamming scum from spamming, anywhere, again. Robert Soloway is currently at #9 of the Top 10 Spammers at Spamhaus. It looks like his ranking is about to drop a few notches soon.

Robert Soloway is one of those career criminals, who habitually break the law whenever it suits his needs. He’s done every dirty spammer trick in the book, and then some. There probably isn’t a computer crime in the books he hasn’t violated. Enforcement being what it is he hasn’t unfortunately been a frequent visitor to the jails in this country. Let’s hope the situation changes when he violates the injuction (and he will, no question).

Nice work Mr. Braver! Now go get every single penny and trinket this criminal owns!
