Spammer Got 2 Years in Jail for Millions of Texts

Phillip Fleitz, 31, was found guilty of helping send millions of illegal spam messages to American and international cellphones and computers. The spammer has been sentenced to 27 months in prison, handcuffed and ordered to immediately begin serving the sentence.


His co-defendants previously received probation for their actions, so a defense attorney argued the spammer should receive a similar sentence, but the judge disagreed, pointing out that Fleitz was the architect and the originator of the very idea.

Phillip Fleitz was one of a dozen residents of the United States charged with marketing illicit computer skills on a cybercriminal marketplace located at Darkode.com. The site was disabled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last summer, with 70 people in the Unites States and 19 other countries being targeted in that takedown.

From 2011 to 2013, the trio of spammers earned $2,000–$3,000 weekly by conspiring to violate a law that protects cellphone and computer users from unwanted marketing and porn messages. Phillip has acknowledged operating the servers in China used by the spammers to infiltrate PCs of hundreds of thousands to millions of people all over the world. One of his co-defendants, 27, was sentenced to 2 years’ probation last year. He created a program matching cellphone numbers with their carriers, which allowed to bombard the phones with unsolicited texts. Another co-defendant, who is confined to his home for 6 months as part of his 2-year probation, created the text messages meant to entice people to respond.

All messages sent by the spammers, both to computers and phones, included Internet links. For example, people who received the text messages were offered to get their gift cards by clicking the links. However, those who responded were routed to online pages controlled by the “cost per action” networks. Those are marketing companies harvesting email addresses and other personal data. Although such companies are officially legitimate, they are not allowed to use spam to drive traffic to them.

At the trial, Phillip Fleitz apologized for his actions, saying that the rules and regulations governing such marketing are among the things that make the US great and should be followed.

analogkid6103 avatarBest news I have heard in awhile. Although I still think the penalty should be To die screaming while in flames. But I always was a moderate on such things.
