Micfo CEO Amir Golestan Goes to Jail for Fraudulent Purchase and Use of IP Addresses for Spamming
Micfo CEO Amir Golestan has been sentenced to prison for five years for using made-up people and fake email addresses in order to amass more than 735,000 IP addresses which he then sold to spammers and scammers in China, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere, along with a smattering of actual legitimate customers. The actual crime of which he is convicted is wire fraud, however for our purposes it is the subject of that fraud, the acts and deeds which led to the fraud charges, which are interesting.
