One of world's most notorious spammers arrested - Robert Alan Soloway
What kind of heinous criminals have the right-wingers provided? Pedophiles, major con-artists, serial killers, and suicidal murders. Yet another heinous criminal fits the profile of Steve Sailer and the right-wingers - the notorious spammer.
Thanks, Steve Sailer. In addition to racists, pedophiles, con-artists, serial killers, and suicidal murders, now we have to deal with spammers. Guys, get off the computer and get some fresh air.
With the savvy computer skills this weirdo posseses, the spammer overwhelms us all with endless amounts of spam to make money off your misery. With nearly unlimited internet media access, he also has plenty of opportunities to satisfy his appetite for child and bestial pornography.
At least one of these computer criminals is going back home to prison. His name is Robert Alan Soloway, 27, believed to be one of the world's top ten spammers. Sure there will be other spammers to take his place, but inevitably they will be heading home to prison.
Man described as 1 of world’s top 10 spammers arrested
SEATTLE - A 27-year-old man described as one of the world’s most prolific spammers was arrested Wednesday, and federal authorities said computer users across the Web could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.
Robert Alan Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised "zombie" computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.
"He’s one of the top 10 spammers in the world," said Tim Cranton, a Microsoft Corp. lawyer who is senior director of the company’s Worldwide Internet Safety Programs. "He’s a huge problem for our customers. This is a very good day."
A federal grand jury last week returned a 35-count indictment against Soloway charging him with mail fraud, wire fraud, e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering.
Soloway pleaded not guilty Wednesday afternoon to all charges after a judge determined that - even with four bank accounts seized by the government - he was sufficiently well off to pay for his own lawyer.
He has been living in a ritzy apartment and drives an expensive Mercedes convertible, said prosecutor Kathryn Warma. Prosecutors are seeking to have him forfeit $773,000 they say he made from his business, Newport Internet Marketing Corp.
