    Brooklyn Man Pleads Guilty To Spamming 1.2 Million AOL Users
    A Brooklyn man pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to spamming 1.2 million AOL users.

    Adam Vitale, 26, pled to charges of working with co-conspirators in a scheme that violated the Can Spam Act, the federal anti-spam e-mail law, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York. He faces a maximum sentence of 11 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

    Title should be: AG taking a bite at spammers.

    In all seriousness, at least one less spammer off the streets but he is a small fish in comparison to the big spammers on this list
    Ma, where the beer? :escape:

    from that article linked in post #1, my bolding:
    Government investigators used a confidential informant to communicate and set up a deal with both Vitale and his cohort, Todd Moeller. Between April and August 2005, Vitale and Moeller boasted to the informant over instant messaging about their ability to send large amounts of spam that would be nearly impossible to trace. Prosecutors also reported that Vitale and Moeller claimed they had the ability to defeat AOL's spam filter.

    Conjoined with greed, false pride brought them down.
