Canadian’s club spammer

mountie-maintain-rightManon Bombardier, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s (CRTC’s) Chief Compliance and Enforcement Officer has fined an outfit $1.1 million for spamming.

Compu-Finder has 30 days to object or pay up.

After an investigation, CRTC found Compu-Finder sent out spam in which the unsubscribe mechanisms did not function properly.

The four violations happened last year between July 2, 2014 and September 16, 2014. Compu-Finder spam accounted for 26 per cent of all complaints submitted last year.

Canada’s anti-spam legislation was adopted by Parliament on December 2010 and came into force on July 1, 2014.

Bombardier said that Compu-Finder flagrantly violated the basic principles of the law by continuing to send unsolicited commercial electronic messages after the law came into force to email addresses it found by scouring websites.

Complaints submitted to the Spam Reporting Centre clearly indicate that consumers didn’t find Compu-Finder’s offerings relevant to them, he said.
