Spamford Wallace

Spamford WallaceAKA Sanford Wallace

Born: c. 1968

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Criminal

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Notorious spammer

Owner of "Cyber Promotions", a notorious spammer, and later founded a group to defend spammers. His business was thought to have ended 16 October 1997, when a court fined him $2 million over these activities, now known as "Spam Freedom Day", though oddly the world is yet to be free of spam. Wallace has since been linked to several spam and spyware outfits, and a website designed to trap users as their browsers open numerous new windows. In several separate lawsuits, he has been forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars, so presumably his spam and other operations must yield substantially more than that in profits. In 2008 his company was fined $234M for its MySpace spam operations, and in 2009 fined another $711M for abuse of Facebook.
