Spam-a-go-go, the online marketplace for buying and selling illegal goods, is about to get a lot more expensive.
According to its founders, a company called Spambucks is going to be launching its own website this week to offer users a way to buy and sell illegal goods.
While the company has been around for years, it was recently shut down by a court due to concerns about its alleged sale of counterfeit products and the illegal use of its platform to facilitate the sale of those products.
Spambucks, which was founded by a group of developers from the Netherlands, plans to provide a secure marketplace that will allow users to buy, sell and trade online products and services, said a statement from the company.
Spampbucks will also be selling its own “digital goods” including bitcoin and ethers, which are virtual currencies that are not backed by any government or currency.
Users will be able to buy goods from their favorite sellers and sellers will be notified when the item is available for purchase, with the buyer also notified of the order by email.
Spambers, which will only sell online products, will also have the ability to sell the goods to customers by phone, email, or even in person.
The company plans to launch a mobile app in the coming weeks that will provide users with easy access to their accounts, including their purchasing history and sales history.
Users can also set up their own orders through the Spamware website, where they can see their order history, buy and cancel orders, and manage their purchases and sales.
Spambos team says it will be selling only the goods that it sells and will not offer refunds for customers who decide to cancel their orders.
The Spamshop website, which has been available since 2013, is expected to go live on Wednesday.
A separate site, Spamhouse, is also set to go up on Tuesday.
Spambas new product will be a “marketplace for the sale and purchase of digital goods”, the company said.
A spokesperson for Spam, which sells products through its website and mobile app, told CoinDesk:”Spamhaus is proud to launch SpamHouse, the world’s first marketplace for the sales and purchase on the Spambos platform, and will launch a similar service to the Spampstore service this week.”
The Spambhos team hopes to launch another marketplace soon for the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies.
The Spambhaus website has been shut down and the company is seeking legal advice.
