No chain gang for Florida spam duo

A judge has ruled against two Florida spammers who called themselves the Dotcomboiz.

Scott J. Filary, 25, and Donald E. Townsend, 34, were sued by the Florida attorney general last April. At the time, AG Charlie Crist said the spammers faced a penalty of $24M for violating Florida's 2004 spam law.

Under the judgment, however, the two men will get off by paying $50,000 to cover the cost of the state's investigation. Spam Kings Blog: No chain gang for Florida spam duo
