Another email spammer gets two years in prison

November 6, 2007

Another email spammer, this time a New Jersey resident has been sent to prison for more than two years after he was convicted of sending millions of junk e-mails to over a million AOL members.

A 28 year old man, Todd Moeller, was sentenced to 27 months behind bars and fined $180,000 at a sentencing hearing on Nov. 2 after he admitted offences against US anti-spam legislation.

Moeller and his partner in crime, Adam Vitale, who faces a sentencing hearing on Nov. 13, were both caught in a sting operation after they offered to bombard 1.2 million AOL members with junk mail.

The pair previously boasted that they could send multiple spam runs without any risk of detection.

In an instant message conversation, Moeller told a secret informant that they could send untraceable junk mail thanks to access to 40 hacked servers.

He bragged that a previous stock spam campaign had earned him $40,000 a month in income.

More background on the scam can be found in a June press release from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, published at the time of Vitale's guilty plea.
