Brendan Battles, ex-spammer

Another longtime spam king has apparently gone out of business. In recent weeks, Florida spammer Brendan Battles was quietly removed from the Spamhaus Register of Known Spam Operations.

The 34-year-old Battles had been listed on ROKSO since the database's inception in 2000. Head of Coral Springs-based DataCom Marketing Corp. and Image Marketing Group Online, Inc., Battles reportedly sent up to 50 million spams per day for things like subliminal weight loss tapes. Battles also used spam to advertise CD-ROMs containing millions of email addresses, including one called Master Disk (aka Max Disc). Spam Kings Blog: Brendan Battles, ex-spammer
