AOL raffles spammer's seized Porsche

The wages of sin offered to US punters

As a nice publicity adjunct to its ongoing war against spam, AOL is holding a raffle to offload a $47,000 Porsche Boxster S which it seized last year as part of a settlement against an unnamed spammer.

The company says the car's original owner made over $1m by unleashing a 1bn email spam tsunami on its users and claims the motor has "symbolic value".

AOL's Randall Boe said: "We'll take cars, houses, boats - whatever we can find and get a hold of."

Punters have until 8 April to stake their claim on the wages of sin. The competition is open only to existing adult AOL customers living in the continental US, who must enter online via the AOL website. ®
