FYI: Hate E-mail Spam, Then Daniel Balsam Is Your Hero

This guy is AWESOME! His “career” is the hustle of all hustles, clap for him.

Daniel Balsam hates spam. Most everybody does, of course. But he has acted on his hate as few have, going far beyond simply hitting the delete button. He sues them.
Eight years ago, Balsam was working as a marketer when he received one too many e-mail pitches to enlarge his breasts.

Enraged, he launched a website called, quit a career in marketing to go to law school and is making a decent living suing companies who flood his e-mail inboxes with offers of cheap drugs, free sex and unbelievable vacations.

“I feel like I’m doing a little bit of good cleaning up the Internet,” Balsam said.

From San Francisco Superior Court small claims court to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Balsam, based in San Francisco, has filed many lawsuits, including dozens before he graduated law school in 2008, against e-mail marketers he says violate anti-spamming laws.

His many victories are mere rain drops in the ocean considering that Cisco Systems. estimates that there are 200 billion spam messages circulating a day, accounting for 90% of all e-mail.

Still, Balsam settles enough lawsuits and collects enough from judgments to make a living. He has racked up well in excess of $1 million in court judgments and lawsuit settlements with companies accused of sending illegal spam.

Man, we’re mad we didn’t think of this idea hahaha! It must be very satisfying to sit in court, have a judge give you money, and watch opposing lawyers lose their sh*t in frustration. Kudos sir, you’re a great man, and a fine American.
