More spammers headed to the slammer, part II

Last August, I reported that spammer Joshua Eveloff (along with Michael Steven Twombly) had been indicted for fraud in San Diego.

Today, I'm happy to see that Eveloff has pled guilty. (Twombly pled guilty on Jan 22). Both are scheduled to be sentenced in April. Eveloff could face up to three years in prison, although he's more likely to get 6-12 months.

Among Eveloff's spams were advertisements for software to "steal anyone's password".
