Spam doesn't pay: man faces 26 year sentence for spamming
By Eric Bangeman | Published: March 16, 2008 - 11:01PM CT

Spamming can pay big bucks, but it hasn't paid off for a Seattle man who was once considered the eighth-largest spammer in the world by Spamhaus. Robert Soloway, 28, pleaded guilty to electronic mail fraud, "snail" mail fraud, and not filing a tax return in 2005—when he reportedly made over $300,000 from his spamming activities.

Good. Money laundering, fraud, identify theft, it's simply unacceptable.
