    Wouldnt be suprised, if Spamford Wallace (or his grandmother of 80), have framed certificates of the LS 'Holiday Dash for Ca$h' promotions on the toilet wall....

    The following note on passthison.com surely refers to it....

    From Sanford Wallace:

    With regards to the allegations by the FTC...

    It should be noted that neither I nor any company I control...

    * have ever received a penny directly from any Internet consumers,
    * place any direct media buys with banner or popup companies,
    * develop any spyware or adware,
    * attempt to collect any personal information from anybody without consent,
    * knowingly participates in ANY scheme to collect personal information,
    * develop or directly sell to consumers any anti-spyware software,
    * develop or deploy zero-day exploits,
    * intentionally cause damage to anything or anyone.

    Our role is that of a webmaster/webserver and involvement with strategic
    optimization to achieve greatest profitibility. The only income we derive
    is from providing these services for other companies. Our services are
    consistent with those of most webmasters/webservers.

    My companies and I plan to COOPERATE with governmental investigations
    and hope to show that our operations are legal. If in fact it is found
    that any of our methods are in violation of any current laws, we will
    immediately cease such activities.

    Sanford Wallace, SmartBot.NET, Inc.

    Any media inquiries should be faxed to 603-994-0153 on letterhead
