Judge Permanently Shutters ISP
According to Computerworld, the judge ordered that assets of Pricewert, doing business as 3FN.net, be sold by a court-appointed receiver. The company also was ordered to turn over $1.08 million in illegal profits to the FTC.
Says Judge Whyte:
There seems to be little doubt from the information provided that Pricewert functioned primarily as an Internet service provider for illegal activity.
