Dozens Charged in Crackdown on Spam and Scams
Good news for e-commerce websites, email marketers, newsletter writers and the rest of us:
Per New York Times August 25, 2004 article Dozens Charged in Crackdown on Spam and Scams, “Federal and state law enforcement agencies have quietly arrested or charged dozens of people with crimes related to junk e-mail, identity theft and other online scams in recent weeks, according to several people involved in the actions.” (You might have to register to read the article, but it’s free.)
Consider not having to worry whether your email newsletter — or your shopping cart purchase confirmation emails — are being blocked by customers’ spam filters. Or having to ask anyone to “whitelist” your email address. Consider not having to load up your computer system with spam filters, and hope you don’t miss even one important email.
Well, it *could* happen.
