Fighting Back Against Junk Faxers
from the gotta-do-something dept
While everyone is focused on stamping out spam and telemarketing calls, junk faxes – which have been outlawed for a dozen years – are still causing people to rise up in anger. The article mentions Steve Kirsch’s $2.2 trillion lawsuit against Fax.com for violating the law. The response from the junk faxers reads just like the response from many spammers. They don’t believe they’re doing anything wrong in inundating people with stuff they don’t want and never asked for – sometimes costing them money. However, more and more angry consumers are taking the faxers to court (though, usually for less than $2.2 trillion) – and winning.
