    Google/Yahoo might be it

    Or GMX and their "GMX Recommendations" might also be pulling in serious bank ;)

    So he was already had a court order banning him from Facebook for spamming, and then he ignored it. Some guys never learn...

    I would be interested in reading about how Facebook uncovered that it was actually him behind the spamming, because it seems like he did take some steps to try to cover his tracks.

    I think there are a lot of russians, chinesse, indians and nigerians that nobody knows about them and are bigger spammers than Michael Persaud.

    Hai Romania!

    So true.

    As for MichaelP I have done business with him over the years going way back. Worked with him in 2011 on some things.

    Will be sad to see him go if it comes to that.

    Simply mailing from a dedicated server instead of sending from you home internet isp is illegal in the eyes of the FBI.

    My point was that the FBI thinks everyone here is breaking the law.

    I think that FBI doesn't give a shit if you do email marketing for some legal ecommercee websites or some apps for example.

    The problem are paypal and credit card scams.
