German connection

Seems that every time the USA's FBI "comes calling" for Ralsky, he's in Germany. 2005 - raid on his home, front door of his home had to be "breached" as no one answered. 2007 - Indicted on multiple federal felony counts, arrest warrant issued.

This information from his mid-1990's federal felony case may show why:

02/11/1998 53 ORDER by Judge David D. Dowd Jr.: permission, as to deft Alan Ralsky, to travel outside the country, to Etzenricht, Bavaria, for a period of two weeks, from 2/121/98 to 2/26/98, in ord to attend his mother-in-law's funeral to Alan M Ralsky (issued on 2/11/98) 1 pg(s) (G,Y.J.) (Entered: 02/11/1998)

Family connections in Europe, probably his wife Irmengard. If only German law enforcement knew one of the largest violators of the EU spam laws was a frequent visitor to their nation.

According to the USA's DOJ, Irmengard Ralsky's name appears on several bank accounts used to store and process his spam and pump & dump profits.
