Google page rank scammer - arrested!  
Some may recall a story about a guy in Brooklyn who was selling fake eyewear and abused clients who complained.  Vitaly Borker also claimed to enjoy negative comments as much as one would like positive comments as he claimed Google didn't differentiate between comments.

The cartoon sums up the situation.


The merchant, Vitaly Borker, 34, who operates a Web site called decormyeyes.com, was charged with one count each of mail fraud, wire fraud, making interstate threats and cyberstalking. The mail fraud and wire fraud charges each carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The stalking and interstate threats charges carry a maximum sentence of five years.

This gives me hope that maybe there is just a little bit of justice out there ;)

I find it a bit disturbing that stalking is a lesser crime than fraud. Anything that threatens someone's safety should carry a greater penalty. But that's just my 2¢ CAD.
