FBI Raid Shuts Down Suspected Spammer

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:41 pm

A man described as one of the nation’s leading senders of spam says an FBI raid on his home office has halted his e-mail operation.

Warrants unsealed last week show that a September raid on Alan M. Ralsky’s home in a Detroit suburb included the seizure of financial records, computers and disks.

“We’re out of business at this point in time,” Ralsky said. “They didn’t shut us down. They took all our equipment, which had the effect of shutting us down.”

Terry Berg, the top deputy in the Detroit U.S. attorney’s office, declined to comment.
