The Bogus Barrister has been subscribed to an emailing list without consent like most people who are spammed. The list seems to be aimed at Home based businesses or Multi Level Marketing. I do believe we have addressed those types of scams here on our blog. They are using a software that harvests email addresses from the internet and those are passes off as "sales leads." Be that as it may, this spammer included a disclaimer at the bottom that tricks people into thinking that some sort of new bill or law has been passed regarding SPAM.
"This message is sent in compliance of the new e-mail bill: SECTION 301. paragraph (A)(2)(C) of S. " WUT?
"This message is NOT Spam as long as you are provided with a way to stop at any time, simply email back with remove in subject line*"
First of all, This piece of SPAM attempts to inform it's spamees that there has been new federal legislation that addresses the issue of unsolicited email aka SPAM and it proceeds to define conditions under which their Spam has been declared "legal" by the passage of this bill. This disclaimer and passage of the federal bill itself are both 100% fiction. There however was such a bill before the 105th congress but the entire Section 301, Paragraph (a)(2)(C) was removed before it was passed by the Senate. The Bill was never passsed by the House of Representatives and thus it never became law. It would be one thing if this was sent from a foreign country not up to date on American law, but this email was sent from IP 18.104.22.168 which is New York.
Most spammers violate the proposed bill they mention, because they don't provide their email addresses, real names, physical addresses and phone numbers in the beginning of their messages. All reputable business will include this information.
The Bogus Barrister never advises people to respond to SPAM, especially one that uses deception to pursuade you to email them back. Spammers do not know if they have a valid address or not unless you reply. Even to tell them off, simply notifies them that its a live address. Your address gets placed on more email lists that you never subscribed to and will generate even more spam. Instead, you can report them to their email service. This one was sent by email@example.com . So you can forward copies with full headers to firstname.lastname@example.org and abuse at gmail.com. You can always use a free service like spamcop.net which will file those spam reports for you. Many email services will disable accounts caught sending out mass spam.
