Robert Soloway from Seattle was once consider the eighth largest spammer in the world, now he’s the first biggest loser. He has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of mail and electronic fraud. He also charged with operating a bot-net used to send out spam to a database of 150 million email addresses. Soloway has been in legal trouble before, in fact an Oklahoma ISP sued under the CAN-SPAM act and after firing his lawyer and refusing to show up to court the ISP got the default $10 million dollar judgment. For his crimes he is facing up to 26 years in jail and up to a $625,000 in fines, but since he’s broke that doesn’t really matter. Just goes to show that crime doesn’t pay especially spamming.
