DecorMyEyes.com Owner Vitaly Borker Arrested
Recently Vitaly Borker, the proprietor of DecorMyEyes.com, was arrested and the charges are “cyberstalking” for making numerous internet threats against people online as well as wire fraud and mail fraud. The owner and operator of the website is looking at some serious time for the offenses that he has been charged with so far. The arrest came shortly after an article in the New York Times revealed his less-than-ethical business practices on the website. Apparently Borker had been spying in on and harassing people all over the internet for months, using various methods of cheating and bullying customers.
Borkers almost always used a pseudonym in order to avoid identification from those who he harassed. The threats which he put forth against others prompted his victims to call the police. He often made threats of violence against his customers and it finally ended in his being arrested.
On the Twitter account for DecorMyEyes, it linked to the story in the New York Times which revealed some of Borker’s business practices. He will appear in federal court on Monday in New York where he will receive his preliminary hearing. Right now it is unclear what his sentence will be like; however with the statements made by some of his victims, it is unlikely that any leniency will be given.
