    "Living among friends
    Those who respond to my emotional breakdowns,
    Those who believe and respect my life
    Those who commit themselves,Those who believe in there dream
    and/or give to make a cause,living among real friends
    trust, why don’t you see,you prey and spend time with those who put you down
    and say you can’t do it,living among friends
    look above the negativity,and be controlled
    let your true god abide,by letting your mind
    teach you.In a way of success
    Living among true friends."

    NY Attorney General Says 'Buffalo Spammer' Arrested
    Wed May 14, 2003 01:48 PM ET
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The man known as the "Buffalo Spammer," who has allegedly sent 825 million unwanted e-mails, has been arrested and arraigned, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer said on Wednesday.
    Howard Carmack, a 36-year-old resident of Buffalo, New York, entered not guilty pleas before a Buffalo City Court judge and bail was set at $20,000, the Attorney General's office said in a statement.

    "We believe Carmack is one of the largest (spammers) and believe there are a significant number of them," Spitzer said in a conference call. "Spammers who forge documentation and steal identities of others to create their e-mail traffic will be prosecuted."

    Spam, or unwanted e-mail hawking everything from herbal sexual stimulants to mortgages, has become a growing issue as it now comprises as much as 75 percent of online messages.

    About two-thirds of the spam that jams up in-boxes contains deceptive information such as false return addresses or pitches for miracle cures and work-at-home schemes, according to a recent analysis by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

    The Attorney General's office said in a statement its Internet bureau receives more complaints about spam than about any other Internet-related issue.

    "Spam itself is not -- of itself -- a crime," Spitzer said. "What makes this criminal conduct is the intersection of spamming with forgery and identity theft."

    Carmack was charged with: stealing the identity of two residents to open Internet access accounts with EarthLink Inc. ; falsifying the business records of EarthLink; forging the headers of e-mail sent from the EarthLink accounts; and possessing a software program designed to create the forged e-mails, the Attorney General's office said in a statement.

    Spitzer said his office worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and EarthLink, the nation's No. 3 Internet service provider. Last week EarthLink won a $16 million settlement and injunctive relief against Carmack in U.S. district court in Atlanta after a year-long investigation.

    "He cost EarthLink more than $1 million," Spitzer charged. "And he opened in excess of 343 e-mail accounts using stolen identities."

    The prosecution is the first by Spitzer under New York's identity theft statute, which was enacted in November.

    I am very happy to see that the AG offices around the country are starting to focus their attention to internet spammers (long overdue) after many services are left holding the fees incurred in these illegal sendings.

    I hope to see much stronger legislative laws enacted in trying to curve these practices from people like Howard Carmack who prey on unsuspecting individuals & corporations that are left holding the responsability and cost of their actions.
