Porn spammer ran a support site for moms

mommyjobs logoTalk about diversifying your online portfolio. A "fetish porn" spammer who faces jail time is also the operator of a site for work-at-home moms (WAHMs).

Jennifer Clason, 33, of Raymond, New Hampshire, just pleaded guilty to violating CAN-SPAM and criminal conspiracy. As part of the plea, entered in federal court in Phoenix, Arizona on Monday, she has agreed to forfeit the profits from her crimes. She also faces up to five years in prison for each of the offenses, which included "the transmission of numerous spam e-mails containing graphic pornographic images."

If Clason goes to jail, it's going to cut into her time as operator of a site called MommyJobs.com -- a self-proclaimed "support site" for work-at-home moms looking to make some money. Sounds pretty wholesome, but MommyJobs.com isn't completely innocent. Check out the site's message board, where there are rousing discussions of get-rich schemes, including "get paid to read email" (PTR) and "auto surf" programs and HYIP (high-yield investment program) scams.

phatbucks.gifNo evidence on the boards that Clason attempted to convince the WAHMs to sign up for Phatbucks.com, her affiliate program for porn spammers, or to visit her porn" thumbnail" site, or her porno webmaster content site.

Clason, who sometimes did business as Coast to Coast Cash, landed on the ROKSO list (not to mention in the cross hairs of the Department of Justice) for using spam to promote her porn biz. Her partners in porn spam included Jeffrey A. Kilbride of California and James R. Schaffer of Arizona.

But Clason seemed to avoid that type of promotion for MommyJobs.com. In fact, she did an amazing job of getting how-to articles placed in publications, with the goal of gaining publicity for MommyJobs.com. Just last month, she had a piece about Google ads published at DailyIndia.com.

jennifer clasonClason is scheduled to be sentenced June 5. In the mean time, she continues to post messages at MommyJobs.com, where members appear to be oblivious about their moderator's legal issues. Last Friday, Clason announced she was heading to Phoenix "to tend to some business." A board member replied, "Jen's finally gonna have a vacation!!!"

Very strange. Assuming some of the regulars to MommyJobs.com messageboard are Christian fundamenalists, this information will not sit well with them. Engaging in these two types of online activity can be totally opposite in its own moral philosophy.

I invite you to read my board before you put this obvious media spin *rolling eyes* on things. Yes I own Phat Bucks, but ask any porn webmaster out there and they've never heard of it. Why? Because I stopped promoting it 2 years ago. Why do I leave it up? I have recurring billing on it that I feed my family with. I'm not about to take food out of their mouths, however I'm letting the company dwindle slowly. I'm not promoting it yet I'm not taking it down either.

Content Shopper is registered under my name byt it belongs to Lloyd Brown.

Here are a list of other domains of mine you neglected to mention:

I think there might be others, but I can't remember off the top of my head. I own these sites, but no longer promote them. And like I said I have people to support.

I have nothing to hide! Nothing at all. And as far as the "Christian Fundamentalists" who might look down on my past. Well they have no idea who I am as a person. I have made some really stupid choices in the past, but this was 2 years ago and I have since found God and have worked with Him to get out of the adult industry. MommyJobs.com is only 3 months old and you make it sound like I simultaneously ran it while I was sending the spam.

So please know the full truth before posting a story you know nothing about. Thank you.

I'm glad you brought up the illegal get rich quick schemes that are being promoted on her mommyjobs.com website. Other articles are focusing on the porn and spam - which is obviously, whe she's in trouble with the law - but other stories seem to be missing that the "mommy" site she is running is just as unsavory as what she is pleading guilty to.

If those are Christian fundamentalists on the site (as your commenter has noted), they should no better than to take money from others to earn some cash for themselves.

I meant to say "know better", not "no better". Sorry.

Posted by: Stacy at March 9, 2006 12:54 PM

she's pretty shady and it's funny how she tells us we don't know who she is so not to speculate. lets see, she's a porn master, a liar, a massive spammer, one who still continues to hurt others by her get rich quick schemes. "But She's Found God". I'm sure God is pretty disappointed to even here her mouth say his name.

Shady? why your handle is "shady"! What the heck? Have you even looked at her site? Gesh...

the funniest thing is she defends herself by citing the need to feed her "family". It turns out she doesn't even have a kid (despite running a site for honest mothers wanting to work at home).

she just lives with her "spouse" as she says, who in all probability has a job of his own.

all those mouths to feed eh? i'm afriad there is just one huge mouth to feed - her own.

Surely next step for American goverment
is to push licensing to spam activities,
thus dominating in that media also.

They surely frauded you about this poor women
and they want many others loose their means
to living.
