A Las Vegas man has pleaded guilty to fraud and criminal contempt after he sent more than 27 million spam messages through Facebook. Sanford Wallace, who is known as the "Spam King," faces a maximum prison sentence of three years and a fine of $250,000 (£160,000).
Wallace tricked people into revealing their login details which he then used to access half a million accounts. He then used those accounts to send spam to other Facebook users.
