Farelf Posted October 15, 2008 Share Posted October 15, 2008 Government agencies in the U.S. and New Zealand say they have sued the people behind one of the world's largest spamming operations. ...lawsuits were filed in U.S. federal court in Illinois and New Zealand High Court in Christchurch over the past week. They describe an international spamming operation run out of New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. that sold the kinds of phony male-enhancement pills, knock-off prescription drugs, sex toys and replica watches that have gummed up e-mail inboxes for years.Ah, all our 'favorite things'. Except sex toys? I get no spam pushing sex toys. Obviously spammers of the world are sufficiently perspicacious to realize they would be surplus to requirement. Perhaps we have underestimated the breed. Pity these are just civil suits - locking the little deviants away would seem a remote prospect, whatever the outcome.
