Borker was arrested in December 2010 and charged with mail fraud, wire fraud and making interstate threats. He pleaded guilty to fraud charges and making threats. Sentencing was postponed on May 10, 2012, to allow the judge to hear testimony from dozens of victims who reported being threatened with violence, including murder and rape. On July 11, 2012, after hearing from five victims, the judge called their testimony about the threats „highly credible” and ordered Borker jailed without bail.

Immediately after hearing from the first five victim witnesses on July 11, 2012, the judge called their testimony about threats „highly credible” and ordered Borker jailed without bail. The testimony detailed threats of murder, rape and, in one instance, slicing off a woman’s legs. The threats were made after customers canceled eyeglass orders or credit card transactions. More witnesses were scheduled to testify the following week.
On September 6, 2012, Borker was sentenced to four years in federal prison and ordered to pay nearly $100,000 in fines and restitution.
On May 12, 2011, Borker pleaded guilty in Federal District Court in Manhattan to two counts of interstate communication of threats, one count of mail fraud and one count of wire fraud. After several procedural deferrals, sentencing was scheduled for May 10, 2012. At the sentencing, Borker’s attorney insisted that Borker never threatened customers with rape or murder despite claims by numerous individuals that he did. The judge postponed the sentencing, saying he wanted to hear testimony from the dozens of victims who reported being threatened with violence. Although federal guidelines recommend a sentence of roughly three years in prison, the judge said he might impose a more severe sentence, stating „I think these are very relevant facts, and if I find them credible, it’s going to affect the sentence in a way that’s going to be significant”.
Customers of DecorMyEyes posted numerous reports of receiving threats, abuse, poor service and overcharges on websites such as ResellerRatings, where DecorMyEyes has, as of October 29, 2010, a lifetime rating of 1.39/10 from 79 reviews. According to Borker, each bad review boosts his site’s PageRank, meaning that the site comes top of Google’s ratings for many of the products he sells. While a direct Google search for „DecorMyEyes” elicits the site and its many negative reviews, searching for individual products and brands does not. The reason, cited by an anonymous Google publicist, is that the large number of links to DecorMyEyes from consumer complaint sites such as Ripoff Report cause DecorMyEyes to rank high in Google search results. Google responded to a New York Times story by writing an algorithm that „detects the merchant from the Times article along with hundreds of other merchants that, in our opinion, provide an extremely poor user experience” and significantly reduces their search visibility on product searches.
On December 6, 2010, Vitaly Borker, the owner of the firm, was arrested by agents of the United States Postal Inspection Service on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud, making interstate threats and cyberstalking, and arraigned in the United States District Court in Manhattan.
