Spammer must pay $25K

— 11:54 AM on October 11, 2004 has the goods on a rare case where a spammer was forced to pay a penalty under the federal Can-Spam Act. The spammer, shockingly, didn't provide a working opt-out mechanism for his mortgage ads. Hard to believe, I know. The $25,000 penalty sounds like a lot of money at first blush, but I'd wager it's just a drop in the ocean for these guys.
