_InformationWeek_ FTC Sues to Stop Spam Touting Bogus Weight Loss and Anti-Aging Products


Recommended Posts

...The full article is here. It's brief -- about 1/2 dozen paragraphs.


The Federal Trade Commission took action today to stem the tide of spam promoting bogus weight-loss and anti-aging products.


The law enforcement action is the first brought by the agency under the U.S. Safe Web Act, which was passed by Congress last year in response to continued growth of spam and cyber crime and provides for greater information sharing among international law enforcement agencies and broader investigative and enforcement powers. The defendants are also charged with violating the Can spam Act of 2003.


A federal district court judge has ordered an ex parte temporary restraining order and asset freeze in the case.
