Sanford Wallace, aka “Spam King,” or “Spamford” – a notorious spam king – is finally paying for all that spam. Wallace is president of Cyber Promotions and now he and his partner have the distinction of getting one of largest anti-spam judgments. The court has ruled that they owe MySpace about $230 million in damages.
U.S. District Judge Audrey B. Collins in Los Angeles ruled in MySpace’s favor Monday. Sanford Wallace and Walter Rines did not show up for the court hearing.
While MySpace may never actually see the money, they hope that it will deter other spammers. Because, obviously you can make a lot of money off spamming and even if you get caught still get to keep the money.
