For those of you thinking you can get away with it, every effort is made to trace the companies/individuals behind the Spam.

Remember this: Spam is used to sell products, to work the receiver would buy the product, so to sell a product the company behind it must leave contact details.... You will be found.

Please note: Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law.

Special Note to would be porn spammers:

In the UK and Australia along with other parts of the world the are laws against transmitting obscene material via the Telephone. Originally this was designed for and applied to voice communications to stop 'Dirty' or 'Obscene' phone calls. Fortunately this law was never modified and is still available to prosecute offenders for computer pornography (this includes sexual references). The maximum sentence in the UK for this is 5 years imprisonment....
