Big Time Bogus Pill Spammer Stopped

from the one-down...-plenty-to-go dept

The FTC is happily announcing the fact that a federal court has shut down one of the big-time Florida pill spammers, Creaghan A. Harry. He's listed in Spamhaus' register of known spammers (though, as Harry Creaghan - which Spamhaus says is his real name even if he insists on reversing it). A federal judged has barred him from sending any more spam, and frozen his assets (which just so happen to be in Latvia). Of course, it remains to be seen if this actually does anything to slow down spam. Still, it's a start.
