OPTINREALBIG.COM OWNER Scott Richter SKIMS LEAD PAYMENTS TO AFFILIATES - SPAMMER SCOTT RICHTER to PAY $7 MILLION SETTLEMENT Unknown Internet
REDMOND, Wash. - A man once accused of being one of the world's top three spammers has agreed to pay $7 million in a settlement with Microsoft Corp., the software maker announced Tuesday.
Besides spending that money to enhance Internet safety partnerships with governments worldwide through training, technological development and investigative assistance, the company pledged $1 million to expand computer access for the poor at community centers in New York state.
The settlement is conditional upon dismissal of bankruptcy petitions Richter and his 4-year-old company have pending in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Denver, and they were expected to file the required motions Tuesday, according to the company's statement.
He and his affiliated businesses also agreed to comply with federal and state laws, including CAN-SPAM, the federal Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act, and will not send spam to anyone who has not confirmed a willingness to receive it.
Another provision calls for three years of oversight of Richter's operations.
