    Hope they get what they 'deserve'.

    The interesting part of the article shows exactly why these type of people are committed to sending out bulk mailings: they managed to get over 10,000 suckers, ah, sorry, 'clients' to send in credit card orders at $39.95 PER client.

    Sort of begs the question why we do affiliate marketing on the up-and-up when you can make this kind of money.

    9 years of jail time seems to answer that for me...

    I would say that was a hugely excessive sentence if it was just for spamming. But the apparently fraudulant nature of the offers--he "used the Internet to peddle sham products and services such as a "FedEx refund processor."--would have a lot to do with the 9 years, I would think.

    I don't feel sorry for him.

    On the up-and-up is the long term solution to making money. It may be slow at times but I bet the legit aff and marketing pros can sleep much better at night than the spamming schemers.

    What's next? ... five years in the slammer for repeating a keyword ten times on your website? Twenty four months for alt tag abuse?

    How can you even compare the two Whiznot?
    Besides sending spam they were ripping people off.

    Exactly..
    its not the amount of SPAM Mail he sent out..
    its the FRAUD he committed..

    what about the poor folks who sent this guy $39.95 to work from home in hopes to earn an income.. 10,000 of them.... maybe we should ask them what he deserves..

    9 years seems excessive but he won't do that much time.. but TIME he does deserve.

    Money is the driving force behind all marketing.
    It's the reason people get up in the morning and drag their sorry butts off to a 9-5 they hate, etc., etc,....

    The spammer going about his business defrauding the unsuspecting and naive public, is no better than the guy who decides to rob a store or break into someones house for quick and easy cash.

    It's still theft and in my view, terribly wrong and offensive to the decent humans doing their best to stay legitimately in business.

    Whew!

    Sorry, just had to vent an opinion
    I'll get off my soap box now!
