Facebook Gets A $711 Million Settlement Against Spammer Sanford Wallace


Back in June I wrote about a ruling against Sanford Wallace, who is one of the most well known spammers. As of today, the case as been settled and “California awarded Facebook $711 million in damages against Sanford Wallace”. Additionally, Wallace now faces possible jail time. Despite the massive settlement, it’s unlikely Wallace will ever show up in California again, or pay the settlement.

Instead, Sanford Wallace is probably moving from country to country, trying to avoid the authorities and living off money stashed in offshore accounts.
