Spammer Arrested

One of world's top ten spammers arrested

Associated Press Reporting

A 27-year-old man described as one of the world's most prolific spammers has been arrested in Seattle.

As a result, federal authorities say computer users across the Web could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.

Robert Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised ``zombie'' computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.

A senior director of Microsoft's Worldwide Internet Safety Programs describes Soloway as `` one of the top ten spammers in the world.''

A federal grand jury last week returned a 35-count indictment against Soloway charging him with mail fraud, wire fraud, e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering.

Soloway has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He remains in federal detention pending a hearing Monday.
