Sydney Spammers Busted By ACMA

Every time a spammer gets busted, the net breathes a sigh of relief. Communications regulator the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has issued formal warnings to two local companies which have repeatedly ignored the provisions of the Spam Act, sending messages without consent and offering no unsubscribe facilities.

Select Print Solutions and SThree Australia both received the warnings after ignoring earlier communications from ACMA telling them to comply with the national spam law. If those warnings are ignored, court action and fines could follow.

ACMA has plenty of form when it comes to warning and fining businesses that send spam. It can’t generally deal with spam originating overseas, unfortunately, but every little step helps.
