An apparent accomplice of Scott Richter, Westmoreland’s Texas-based company, Internet Access Group Inc., sends millions of spam messages pushing everything from gas to online diploma mills to auto loans and mortgages. His business also operates under names Brilliant Marketing, Aphrodite Marketing, OptiGate Networks and Players Exchange Club.
Robert Soloway’s Oregon-based company, Newport Internet Marketing Corporation, has sent millions of spam emails and has been subject of numerous complaints and lawsuits by class action groups and Microsoft.
Soloway’s spam messages often contain get-rich-quick schemes selling (what else?) spam software and “fresh” email addresses. Yes, that’s right folks; you too can send spam to 15 million recipients for just $295. At least that’s what ad says, but would you want to give your credit card number to someone like this?
