BBC: Spammer's Porsche up for grabs
Internet giant AOL has ratcheted up the war against unsolicited e-mail with a publicity-grabbing coup - an online raffle of a spammer's seized Porsche.
AOL won the car - a $47,000 Boxster S - as part of a court settlement against an unnamed e-mailer last year.
"We'll take cars, houses, boats - whatever we can find and get a hold of," said AOL's Randall Boe.
According to Mr Boe, the Porsche's previous owner made more than $1m by sending junk e-mail.
Mr Boe said the Porsche was seized mainly for its symbolic value, as the obvious fruit of an illegal trade.
The Porsche sweepstake lasts until 8 April, and will be open only to those who were AOL members when it was first announced.
