A big link to SPAM


The jury convicted, Jeffrey A. Kilbride, 41, of Venice, Calif., and James
R. Schaffer, 41, of Paradise Valley, Ariz., on eight counts arising out of the
international pornographic spamming business they organized and ran in 2004. The
trial, which began on June 5, 2007, was the first to include charges under the
Controlling the Assault of Non-solicited Pornography and Marketing (CAN-SPAM)
Act of 2003. The law created by the CAN-SPAM Act was designed to crack down on
the transmission of pornography in commercial bulk unsolicited electronic mail

And from

Jeffrey A. Kilbride, 41, of Venice, Calif., and James R. Schaffer, 41, of
Paradise Valley, Ariz., had been sentenced to 72 months and 63 months in prison,
respectively, for running an international pornographic spam ring that took in
more than $1 million.

Kilbride and Schaffer were fined $100,000, ordered to pay $77,500 to AOL,
and will forfeit more than $1.1 million in illegal proceeds from their spam

So, where's the connection? Well, let's have a look at a little company called "Modern Internet Ventures, LLC" based in Louisiana. It was created in 2002 and it's still active according to the corporations database. It's members are Jeff Kilbride, Jim Schaffer (listed as JLM Media which connects to Jim ofcourse) and Michael Gardner. And the Registered agent is Sigmund J Solares.

Connection to convicted spammers? Check. That is what you are getting if you deal with Intercosmos, Directnic,, The Producers, Modern Domainer, etc....
