Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly

We have a new hero in the fight against unsolicted commercial email, TechWeb reports:

In addition to the federal legislation, Reilly charges the spammer's actions are prohibited by the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act. The case is scheduled to be heard July 21 in Massachusetts Suffolk Superior Court.

The AG's office identified the alleged spammer as William T. Carson of Weston, Fla., who offered “pre-approved mortgage rates even with bad credit” to consumers. Reilly's spokesperson added that 27 complaints against a business operated by Carson have been filed with authorities including Reilly's Consumer Complaint Hotline and the FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center.
