Will convicting five major spammers put an end to spam? Sadly not

Sadly not – but the news that the US department of justice has secured guilty pleas from five “prolific” spammers, including Alan Ralsky, might make other US-based spammers pause for thought. And many of the most troublesome spammers are based in the US, although they use ­servers in China and other countries to serve their wares.Ralsky, 64, and his son-in-law, Scott Bradley, 38, face maximum sentences of six years in prison and $1m fines for breaking the CAN-SPAM act and ­additional charges of wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
