Alleged Spammers Using Google Apps: Bad Idea

If you are alleged to have sent spam, alleged to have created thousands of webmail accounts in order to shovel spam selling Acai berry-related products, maybe storing details of your alleged crimes "in the cloud" isn't such a great idea.

Why does the name Pulse Marketing ring a bell? I can't recall for sure. But, I've certainly dealt with marketers that I consider to be similar in that they often have somewhat generic company names, unfinished or very information-free websites, never listing principals behind the company, use UPS Stores or other "dropbox" mailing addresses, etc. Probably all legal practices, but red flags when trying to assess likelihood of best practice compliance by way of looking at the transparency of their business practices and contact information.
