SPAMMER SETTLES IN COURT CASE FOR $ 50KNEW YORK — In what is considered to be a landmark case involving OptInReal Big.com, has recently been settled. Eliot Spitzer, New York's anti-spam attorney general, has reached a settlement with Scott Richter and his company, OptIn RealBig.com.
According to the terms, Richter, known as the "Spam King," will agree to pay $40,000 in fines plus $10,000 toward the investigative cost. In addition, he agrees to refrain from using fraudulent headers and deceptive routing and domain practices.
The attorney general's office is also requesting Richter to provide customer data and purchase records and copies of OptInRealBig.com's E-mail advertisements.
Richter, however, did not admit to any violations of the law as part of the settlement
The suit was originally filed in December 2003, charging Richter and his clients with sending unsolicited E-mails, which encompassed false headers and subject lines.
