Spam King Goes To Jail


Posted September 23, 2008 - By timbococ

By his own estimate, Robert Soloway probably sent over 10 Trillion spam emails, but he lost count long ago. In an interview with NBC, Soloway claimed “pure greed” as his motivation for continuing to spam; at one time he made $20,000 a day, money he spent at the same rate on high-rolling Vegas trips and expensive cars. (See him chillin' during one of his Vegas trips on the right, there).

Mass spamming has been a federal crime since 2004, but Soloway was also accused of identity theft, money laundering, and various types of fraud. He was arrested in May of 2007, copped a plea agreement in March 2008, and was sentenced in July 2008. His prison term begins “any day now." Hopefully unknown emails will continue to kindly verify my bank account info, and thoughtfully sell me male enhancement products at reasonable prices.
