Getting TONS of spam?
U.S. investigators said on Wednesday they had arrested an America Online employee and a Las Vegas marketer for stealing the Internet provider’s customer list and selling it to a purveyor of “spam” e-mail.
AOL members were flooded with millions of unwanted messages because of the scheme, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. district court in New York.
Although – upon first reading of the title of the article (above)…they make it sound like the AOL worker sold the customer list for a can of spam. Maybe it’s just me. 😉
