Nashville Guy writes “According to Australia’s The Age, ‘A New Zealand man living in Queensland and believed to be behind the world’s largest spam operation, has been ordered to pay more than $16 million for running the illegal enterprise. Lance Atkinson, 26, originally from Christchurch, was living in Pelican Waters on the Sunshine Coast when the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) had his assets frozen last year. … The FTC found Atkinson and American Jody Smith were at the centre of the world’s largest internet spam operation, dubbed ‘AffKing,’ having recruited spammers from around the world.’”
