Web Pro News
"Snipermail employees flipped into plea bargains with federal prosecutors. They testified that Mr. Levine utilized a security flaw in Acxiom's ftp
server and accessed personal records for scores of people. After adding that data to Snipermail's existing database, Mr. Levine approached Experian
about buying him out."
It was all about increasing the size of his database to make his company look more valuable. From what I have read, most of his database was junk with
very little worth. This stolen data gave his original database more credibility.
6 other employee's of Snipermail plead guilty to conspiracy charges associated with this case and provided the evidence against Mr. Levine.
Sounds like he was a rotten businessman and individual that finally got his just dessert.
