'Death threats' land spammer in court

An internet spammer is in court following scams which allegedly netted him £1.5m over a number of years.

Peter Francis-Macrae is currently on trial for alleged death threats, made as police and trading standards moved in on his fraudulent net operation.

The court was told how he ran a bogus registration service for net addresses.

Pretending to be a legitimate agent who could act on behalf of businesses wanting to register a domain name proved a lucrative scam, jurors heard.

But as the net closed on his bogus businesses, he allegedly began threatening police and trading standards staff and it was this that finally landed him in court.

What a muppet. Death threats against the police and trading standards personnel are generally considered a bad idea, even amongst the most hardened of organised criminals, never mind a spammer. Oh well, you live and learn, I suppose.

At the risk of sounding like Forrest Gump, you know what my mommy says? She says some people don't have sense enough to pour piss out of boot. Case in point, the spaminator. ;)
