Spam King pulls prison vanishing act

coondoggie writes "Seems the Spam King is also an escape artist. Eddie Davidson this week just walked away from a federal prison camp in Colorado where he had been serving 21 months for his massive spamming activities. THE FBI is now looking for Davidson who was also to pay $714,139 in restitution to the IRS. As part of the restitution, Davidson agreed to forfeit property he purchased, including gold coins (which the IRS is selling today), with the ill gotten proceeds of his offense, the Department of Justice said. At the time of sentencing the judge ordered Davidson to report to a facility designated by the Bureau of Prisons on May 27, 2008. Davidson had made well over $3.5 million, court papers show.
