The reputed "Godfather of Spam", 64-year-old Bloomfield, Michigan man Alan Ralsky, has been sentenced to four years behind bars by a U.S. District Judge in the Motor City. Ralsky and his co-conspirators were found guilty of leading an email stock scheme and money laundering operations.
Ralsky, a West Bloomfield resident, was convicted alongside his son-in-law, 48-year-old Scott Bradley. Both designed an elaborate spamming operation that took aim at high-value targets: those in involved in the stock market. The pair were able to use spam to help inflate stock prices and in turn profited once they traded in those same stocks. This is often referred to as a "pump and dump" scheme. (Source: pcworld.com)
Spam Godfather Faces Prison, Probation, $250K Fine
Ralsky will receive a stiff penalty for his "white collar" crime. In addition to the four years in prison, he'll also receive five additional years of closely supervised probation. In the meantime, he's expected to pay a hefty $250,000 fine for several violations of the CAN-SPAM Act, including mail fraud and wire fraud.
