Spammer sentenced to 21 months

Where there is crime, there is a victim, or so the adage goes, and in this case, you’re likely one of the victims yourself. Eddie Davidson was the spam king of Louisville until he was caught in 2007, and he was sentenced today to 21 months in a federal PMITA prison.

Davidson sent out millions of spams, from fake rolexes to junk stocks. He was convicted on tax charges and for falsifying header information in emails. Oh, and fined almost three-quarters of a million bucks.
