'Spam King' Guilty Of Posting 27M Facebook Messages

Considering this guy's record, he should thank his lucky stars he's only facing three years in prison.

Sanford Wallace, aka "the Spam King," aka "Spamford Wallace," admitted that he unlawfully accessed over 500,000 accounts on the network between 2008-9 in violation of a court order. This is far from his first rodeo -- Sanford was annoying consumers well before the internet came along, when he sent junk faxes in violation of laws enacted in 1991. Since then, he's faced lawsuits for email spamming, multiple-window launching (remember that? ) spyware scams and MySpace phishing, to name a few.
