Florida Wins First Injunction Against Spammers


Recommended Posts

The story.


The U.S. state of Florida won its first victory against "spam" electronic mail when a judge granted an injunction against two men accused of running mass emailing operations, the state prosecutor said on Tuesday.
The men, Scott Filary, 25, and Donald Townsend, 34, both of Tampa, are accused of sending more than 65,000 emails, many with misleading subject lines and disguised origins.

The emails took recipients to Web sites Crist said were engaged in fraudulent or illegal activities, such as selling pharmaceuticals and cigarettes online or providing a platform for the illegal downloading of copyrighted movies.
