AOL Digs For Bars of Golds in Spammer’s Backyard

It’s official: AOL is koo-koo for cracko puffs.

AOL successfully sued spam king Davis Wolfgang last year for $12.8 million but has been unable to collect damages. Receipts submitted by AOL’s lawyers reflect large purchases of gold bars, which AOL believes Davis buried on his parent’s property with a shovel.

“AOL’s lawyer notified the family that the company intends to use bulldozers and geological teams to hunt for gold and platinum on their property.”

“I don’t care if they dig up the entire yard. They’re just going to make fools of themselves,” said Peggy Greenbaum, Hawke’s mother.

We think the grin on Davis’ father’s face says it all.
