Order against "cheating wives" spammers

Cheating Housewives logo

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has scored another spammer takedown. The FTC announced it got a temporary restraining order against a California-based porn-spam operation that advertised a database of "married but lonesome house wives," among other things.

The defendants in the lawsuit are Cleverlink Trading Limited, Real World Media, LLC and their principles, Brian D. Muir, Jesse Goldberg, and Caleb Wolf Wickman.

The defendants' Web sites include wantmorebabes.com, hotobjectofdesire.biz, maxfulltime.info, wiveswhocheat69.biz, hookuptomorrow.com and w0wo.com.

The FTC alleges that they violated CAN-SPAM in numerous ways, including the failure to label their spams with the required "Sexually-Explicit" tag in the subject line.

Some sites registered to Real World Media still appear to be functioning, despite the court order. E.g. there are 47 live sites at IP address, including onlinecheatingwives.com. For $32.71 per month, membership at onlinecheatingwives.com gives you access to "a unlimited data base of hot married woman (sic)."

One of the defendants, Wickman, appears also to have been an affilliate for bankrupt pill spammer Damon DeCrescenzo. The outfit also has connections to the Argentine spam house Super-Zonda.
