Talking spammers and Scammers finally getting thiers

http://www.informationweek.com/story...02810&tid=5979

LEESBURG, Va. (AP) - A brother and sister who sent junk e-mail to millions of America Online customers were convicted Wednesday in the nation's first felony prosecution of Internet spam distributors.
Jurors found Jeremy Jaynes, 30, and Jessica DeGroot, 28, guilty of three counts each of sending e-mails with fraudulent and untraceable routing information.

A third defendant, Richard Rutkowski, 30, was acquitted after deliberations of 1 1/2 days. All three defendants live in the Raleigh, N.C., area.

Prosecutors compared Jaynes and DeGroot to modern-day snake oil salesmen who use the Internet to peddle junk like a "FedEx refund processor" that supposedly allowed people to earn $75 an hour working from home.

In one month alone, Jaynes received 10,000 credit card orders, each for $39.95, for the processor.

"This was just a case of fraud," said prosecutor Gene Fishel. "This is a snake oil salesman in a new format."

Prosecutor Russell McGuire said Jaynes amassed a net wealth of $24 million peddling worthless products like the refund processor and other products like a "penny stock picker" and an Internet history eraser.

"He's been successful ripping people off all these years," McGuire said.

Thumbs up Re: spammers and Scammers finally getting thiers

Well, it's about time.
I hope they get what they deserve.
I receive 20-40 e-mails a day at home and maybe one or two are from people I know the rest are junk. Most messages don't have return or traceable addresses. I'm so tired of it.

This case will put all the others on notice.

unfortunately no it wont, It will just keep going and going and going!
Sucks but they find loopholes, create programs and applications so as the screws tighten, they find tighter ways to do it.
