International Netforce Launches Law Enforcement
The Federal Trade Commission has joined eight state law enforcers in the United States and four Canadian agencies in
an initiative targeting deceptive spam and Internet fraud. The agencies have brought 63 law enforcement actions against

sending deceptive spam that it is illegal. In addition, Netforce partners tested whether "remove me" or "unsubscribe"
options in spam were being honored.
