American Online is running a sweepstakes in which the prize is a 2002 Porsche Boxter seized from "a guy who by our estimates made more than a million dollars from spamming," according to AOL executive Randall Boe.
Anick Jesdanun writes that AOL got the car as part of their settlement in a lawsuit against the spammer. Boe says, "We'll take cars, houses, boats, whatever we can find and get a hold of."
The sweepstakes can only be entered online and is open until April 8. In order to enter, you must have been an AOL subscriber before the sweepstakes opened Tuesday.
The Porsche is a two-door, silver-gray metallic model with 18,000 miles on it. It has a leather interior and retails for $47,000. AOL won't identify the spammer, except to say that the car has California plates.
