More Soloway legal documents

Spamsuite now has copies of the search warrant and two affidavits which were filed to support the warrant (FBI, IRS). The affidavits are the most interesting to read. They detail Soloway's history of spamming, fraud, credit card theft, and money laundering.

Other tidbits: Soloway started Newport Internet Marketing when he was 16. NIM was operating illegaly in Washington, being a California corporation which did not file the proper papers to operate in WA. NIM's incorporation has been suspended in California, although Soloway kept operating as if it was still a legal corporation.

Soloway made $1.6M in the last four years.

I for one, would be very interested to see the names of his spamming customers revealed during the trial.
