A while ago we did a story on Alan Ralsky, an email spammer that's made millions by flooding your inbox with unsolicited ads for everything from herbal Viagra to weight loss schemes. Now, it appears that Ralsky is getting a dose of his own medicine, and he doesn't like it:
Ever since I wrote a story on him a couple of weeks ago (www.freep.com/money/tech/mwend22_20021122.htm), he says he's been inundated with ads, catalogs and brochures delivered by the U.S. Postal Service to his brand-new $740,000 home.Ralsky is actually planning on suing those responsible for the junk mail campaign, but somehow I don't think he'll have much luck with a judge.
It's all the result of a well-organized campaign by the anti-spam community, and Ralsky doesn't find it funny.
"They've signed me up for every advertising campaign and mailing list there is," he told me. "These people are out of their minds. They're harassing me."
