Sanford Wallace is better known as "Spamford" on the web. The Las Vegas-based "Spam King" accessed Facebook members' accounts without their permission, and sent out fake Wall posts and spam messages from the compromised accounts. He was fined $4 million by the Federal Trade Commission in the United States for posting an excessive number of intrusive pop-up ads. Wallace and his business partner, Walter Rines, were found guilty of carrying out phishing attacks against MySpace users, and spamming MySpace members with unsolicited messages. The social networking site won a $230 million payout from the "Spam King".
