AOL Auctions off Spammers car

America Online said its members have submitted more than one million AOL screen names in the Internet company’s unorthodox drawing for a spammer’s seized sports car.

Last week, AOL announced it had confiscated a red Porsche Boxster S convertible as part of a settlement with a spammer who made more that $1 million from sending unwanted junk e-mail. AOL, a unit of Time Warner Inc., launched a sweepstakes for the car on March 30 as “a gesture of support and thanks” to its members for their help in the fight against spam.
