Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

For several years I have been receiving spams from this so-called H1-B employment agency asking me to hire people from other countries.  I have told them that I do not own a company and I am not in a position to hire anyone.  This is my personal email account. I have asked this so-called agency to Cease and Desist and they have refused. 

I have asked repeatedly for the source of my email address so I can scrub it permanently only to be told that it would be done.  A major lie when I receive another email.

I filed a complaint against this agency with the VA Attorney General.  Their response is that since I belong to a Yahoo group, that they demand that I delete my name from the group.  Excuse me?  I was part of Yahoo groups before the recruiter came to this country and the groups I belong to is school related.

Then this so-called used this fake law to justify their sending of spam.

This so-called disclaimer is not only illegal it is totally wrong.  Here is the information on this "SPAM" law.


S.1618 Title III

It turns out that there was a S.1618 titled The Telephone Slamming Bill of 1998. The primary purpose of that bill was to address telephone slamming: changing your long distance provider without your permission.
While that bill was being considered, Senator Frank Murkowski submitted this Title III amendment:

Title III: Spamming - Requires a person who transmits an unsolicited commercial electronic mail message to include at the beginning of the body of the message: (1) the name, physical address, electronic mail address, and telephone number of the person who initiates transmission of the message or who created the content of it; and (2) a statement that further
transmissions of such mail to the recipient by the person may be stopped at no cost to the recipient by sending a reply to the originating electronic mail address with the word "remove" in the subject line. (Sec. 302) empowers the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with regulatory authority over such unsolicited electronic mail, including authority to conduct investigations, commence civil actions against individuals, and impose fines, penalties, and injunctions. Requires the
FTC to take appropriate action within two years after the transmission of such electronic mail.
(Sec. 303) Authorizes a State to bring a civil action on behalf of its residents against individuals or entities transmitting electronic mail in violation of this Act. Requires such State to notify the FTC of such action.
(Sec. 304) States that this Act shall not apply to an electronic mail transmission by an interactive computer service provider unless the provider initiates the transmission or the transmission is not made to its own customers.
Authorizes actions by such providers to enforce the sanctions under this Act. Requires such action within one year after receipt of the transmission.
(Sec. 305) Requires a person who receives from any other person an electronic mail message requesting the termination of further transmission of commercial electronic mail to cease such transmissions to the individual. States that a person who secures a good or service from, or otherwise responds electronically to, an offer of unsolicited commercial electronic mail
shall be deemed to have authorized such transmission. }

Seems to me that someone needs an attorney that actually went to law school.
