Alan Ralsky Indicted

Well well. It seems the Feds have decided that Ralsky has been helping the Russian stock kiters...
A federal grand jury indictment was unsealed today in Detroit charging 11 persons, including Alan M. Ralsky ... in a wide-ranging international fraud scheme involving the illegal use of bulk commercial e-mailing, or "spamming" ... The charges arose after a three-year investigation ... revealed a sophisticated and extensive spamming operation that, as alleged in the indictment, largely focused on running a stock “pump and dump” scheme.
Much, much more at today's IT Blogwatch.

(Happy new year, by the way.)

I must say it's nice to see this. When I first started doing spam fighting 3.5 years ago, I remember blocking piles and piles of his IPs in our access-denied list. Many of them still exist to this very day.
