SMS Spam in the News

SMS (text messaging) spam is frustrating, and blatantly illegal. Sadly, it's not always easily prosecuted, as the bad actors engaging in this practice often hide behind redirectors, falsehoods, and pseudonyms. So it is always a gleeful moment when I read of somebody tracking and filing suit against an SMS spammer. If the allegations are true, Gregorio A. Tejera, Lazaro W. Diaz-Fernandez and Jose Leyva are going to be on the hook for some serious monetary damages.

Aside: It's been years since I've heard somebody talk about the Rodney L. Joffe v. Acacia Mortgage Corporation precedent. I wonder if it will be mentioned in this case.
