Prosecutors said Jeremy Jaynes used the Internet to peddle pornography and sham products and services such as a “FedEx refund processor,” and at the time of his arrest was considered among the top 10 spammers in the world. Thousands of people fell for his e-mails, and prosecutors said Jaynes’ operation grossed up to $750,000 per month.
Maybe spamming will stop? One can only hope!

There was a local neutraceutical manufacturer around here that was recently raided by postal inspectors. It seems that while they haven't gotten them on spamming, they got them on mail fraud when they shipped products that didn't meet their claims. :rofl:

I can see it now. The DoJ/FBI must be monitoring our thread killer thread to spot potential spammers :devil:

Good riddance to bad rubbish. They should make him read every single e-mail he sent out.

The repsonse rate to spam is about 0.1% -- one in a thousand spam messages actually lead to a sale. It doesn't sound like a lot, but when you consider that some spammers can send billions of messages a day, it's more than enough.

Sort of like my success rate when I was trying to get a woman to date me. You have to play the numbers...

This month's Scientific American has a brief article on that by people who are working on it. I only skimmed it because I'm not really interested, but their conclusion is that you can't stop spammers if they're determined. They're taking the approach of making it not worth their trouble to succeed.
