Database spam thief charged

A US man has been charged with stealing the membership database held at the American College of Physicians (ACP) in Philadelphia, USA.
William Bailey, Jr, of North Carolina, faces up to 55 years in jail and $2,750,000 in fines if found guilty of illegally accessing the database and downloading contact details of 80,000 members.


46-year-old Bailey runs a web site called dr-411.com which sells professional organisation member databases including addresses and email addresses for doctors, dentists, lawyers and estate agents.


Bailey's web site, which is currently not active, contained adverts for email databases, one of which read: 'Physician Email Database 20,350 emails for US $399'.
