Inside the Life of a Spammer

Do you ever wonder, how, who and WHO sends you all those spam messages? One of the big time spammers has recently been convicted of spamming and his court case is revealing.
The Washington Post writes As one of the world’s most prolific spammers, Jeremy Jaynes pumped out at least 10 million e-mails a day with the help of 16 high-speed lines, the kind of Internet capacity a 1,000-employee company would need.
Jaynes’ business was remarkably lucrative; prosecutors say he grossed up to $750,000 per month. If you have an e-mail account, chances are Jaynes tried to get your attention, pitching software, pornography and work-at-home schemes.
The eight-day trial that ended in his conviction this month shed light on the operations of a 30-year-old former purveyor of physical junk mail who worked with minimal assistance out of a nondescript house in Raleigh, N.C.
A state jury in Leesburg has recommended a nine-year prison term in the nation’s first felony trial of spam purveyors. Sentencing is set for February.
