EarthLink Claims Victory in Spam Case: “The group used stolen or forged credit cards and engaged in identity theft to set up EarthLink accounts that were then used to send spam…”
What I don’t get is how can someone make money spamming people while hiding their identity. Don’t you need people to be able to, like, send you money or something? One way or another, if spam is supposed to actually make money for the spammer, there has to be a trail to follow, right? Besides, who would refinance their home with someone who spells “mortgage” “m.0rtg_aaaagE” anyway?
