Meet "Spammer-X," author of the new book Inside the Spam Cartel (Syngress Publishing). He's 22 years old, lives...

in a city apartment with his girlfriend. He likes music, running and computers. He is also a reformed spammer.

Yes, in his spare time, this anonymous ex-spammer used to send 10 to 20 million unsolicited e-mails a week. In fact, there's a strong likelihood that you have received at least one spam e-mail from him.

"New tactics for sending spam are becoming so successful that it is almost impossible to stop well written spam from being delivered," says Spammer-X. "You may think you are one step ahead, with aggressive spam filters and strict ACLs. The truth, however, is that if a spammer wants to abuse your network, he will."
