...Law Enforcers Arrest Dozens in Crackdown on 'spam'.

...Brief excerpts:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. law enforcers are arresting dozens of people in a nationwide crackdown on "spam" e-mail, identity theft and other fraudulent online activity, a person involved in the investigation said Wednesday.


The Direct Marketing Association (DMA), which represents bulk mailers and other direct sellers, said it had helped the FBI track down marketers who engage in fraudulent or abusive practices.


Unsolicited bulk e-mail accounted for 65 percent of all e-mail traffic, according to computer-security company Symantec Corp, up from 50 percent in July 2003.
