Spammers, beware: more criminal spam prosecutions--complete with stiff prison sentences and mandatory forfeiture of relevant valuables--are on the way in the coming months, a U.S. Department of Justice attorney said Thursday.

"I think the healthy dose of jail time plus lose-your-money is working," Mona Sedky Spivack, a trial attorney in the Justice Department's computer crime and intellectual property unit, said at the second day of a Federal Trade Commission spam summit here. "I hope that provides a deterrent effect to other would-be criminal spammers out there."

Pffft! It isn't going to stop a thing. They just move offshore. Heck, Iran is telling them to move there. No one can touch them. For all their huffing and puffing the authorities have made as much progress as their war on drugs.
I've got more spam than ever.

Fear not, it looks like the FBI or some other TLA is releasing spy squirrels [washingtonpost.com] on Iran's borders.

Something must have happened, because I have a hell of a lot less spam than I used to have.
