Criminal Case Initiated in Moscow against “World’s Largest Spammer”

The Moscow police instituted criminal proceedings against entrepreneur Igor Gusev, who is believed by some to be the world’s most prolific spammer. He allegedly sold counterfeit pharmaceuticals, such as India-made generic Viagra, in the U.S., Canada, and other countries, using email spamming as a major marketing tool. The revenue generated by Mr. Gusev's business during the last 3.5 years is believed to be $120 mln. The criminal proceedings were instituted on “illegal entrepreneurship” charges. Gusev escaped and is wanted by the police.
