Porn Spammers Get 5 Years In Prison

It pleases us when spammers go to prison. Join us in bidding fond farewell to Jeffrey A. Kilbride, 41, of Venice, Calif., and James R. Schaffer, 41, of Paradise Valley, Ariz.. These two gentlemen have been convicted of “running an international pornographic spam ring that took in more than $1 million.”

Kilbride and Schaffer began spamming in 2003, sending out millions of spam messages advertising hard-core porn sites. The messages contained graphic images that were visible to whoever opened the e-mail. Later in 2003, the two men began using servers in Amsterdam to make messages they were sending from Phoenix appear to be coming from outside the United States.

On June 25, a federal jury in Phoenix convicted the two men of sending spam messages with forged headers and domain names, conspiracy, fraud, money laundering, and obscenity charges.

Have fun in prison, douchebags!
