U.S. arrests Spam King

Posted on Thursday, May 31 2007 @ 15:26:02 CEST by

U.S. prosecutors announced they've arrested Robert Soloway. This 27-year old guy is responsible for so much junk mail they called him Spam King.
"Our investigators dubbed him the 'Spam King' because he is responsible for millions of spam emails."

Between November of 2003 and May of 2007 Soloway "spammed" tens of millions of e-mail messages to promote websites at which his company, Newport Internet Marketing, sold products and services, according to prosecutors.

Soloway routinely moved his website to different Internet addresses to dodge detection and began registering them through Chinese Internet service providers in 2006 in an apparent ploy to mask his involvement.
News reports indicate Soloway faces a maximum sentence of more than 65 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Other sources also indicate that because of his arrest spam levels on the Internet will drop immediately. I'm not sure if this is related to the arrest of Soloway but when I woke up this morning I did notice that I got a lot less spam mail.
