Do Not Spam List Warned By Michigan Attorney General
from the knocking-off-a-scam dept
Remove.org, the scam “do not spam” list that was (a) not stopping spam and (b) spamming people themselves, has been warned by the Michigan Attorney General to knock it off. The Attorney General is considering filing a lawsuit against the owners of the site, and has given them ten days to respond to the warning. The warning lists all the ways which the site has been misleading in its advertising, including calling itself a non-profit, promising to stop all spam and telemarketing, and claiming it has offices in Washington DC – when the address listed is just a Mailboxes Etc.

Michigan doesn’t mess around. They’ve got one of the most visible, most consumer/citizen-oriented Attorneys General that I’ve seen from any state.
Every year they do a Christmas shopping sting against retailers who have deceptive or inaccurate register pricing. They clamp down retailers who engage in sale-price bait-and-switch, and a wide variety of issues of electronic fraud.
I’d like to see this kind of activity from more states.
