As a nice publicity adjunct to its ongoing war against spam, AOL is holding a raffle to offload a $47,000 Porsche Boxster S which it seized last year as part of a settlement against an unnamed spammer.

The company says the car's original owner made over $1m by unleashing a 1bn email spam tsunami on its users and claims the motor has "symbolic value".

AOL's Randall Boe said: "We'll take cars, houses, boats - whatever we can find and get a hold of."
