DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A federal judge has awarded an Internet service provider more than 1 billion USD in what is believed to be the largest judgment ever against spammers.Dec 18, 3:25 PM (ET) Robert Kramer, whose company provides e-mail service for about 5,000 subscribers in eastern Iowa, filed suit against 300 spammers after his inbound mail servers received up to 10 million spam e-mails a day in 2000, according to court documents. U.S. District Judge Charles R. Wolle filed default judgments Friday against three of the defendants under the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the Iowa Ongoing Criminal Conduct Act. AMP Dollar Savings Inc. of Mesa, Ariz., was ordered to pay 720 million USD and Cash Link Systems Inc. of Miami, Fla., was ordered to pay 360 million USD. The third company, Florida-based TEI Marketing Group, was ordered to pay 140,000 USD
The only easy day was yesterday.
