FCC Fines Fax.com $5.38 Million For Junk Faxes

from the but-when-do-they-go-after-spam.com? dept

The FCC has decided to fine Fax.com $5.38 million, claiming they violated anti-unsolicited fax laws repeatedly. Apparently, the FCC had warned the company a number of times, and Fax.com kept at it. It'll be interesting to see how the company responds. It's still never been made completely clear to me why we can't just make anti-junk fax laws cover spam as well.

    Unsolicited Fax harassment

    A company called "Market Watch sends me 6 or 7 real junk fax
    every month. The "FAX REMOVAL" number is erroneous:

    I went onto their website (www.alldeepblue.com) the second
    site is unreadable.

    This is costing me time, money, and high bloodpressure. I am
    80 years old and the pressure of the cost in time and funds, not
    to count the time it takes to go to Office Depot for new Fax
    machines supplies....

    How might I get them to STOP. This is being done to me
    out of spite.
