“The Government’s anti-spam team received 155 complaints from the public about spam e-mails during the first week that the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act was in force.”
That’s quite a good effort when you think that most consumers would not even be aware of the NZ Anti-SPAM Act.
The real effort for the DIA is determining if the spammer is in fact based in NZ – if not then I would think there would be no reason to pursue the spammer. Most people don’t realize that 80% of the SPAM sent is generated by 200 core spammers who are mostly based in the US, China and Russia. Some of the spammers based in the US are in fact sending SPAM which is compliant with the CAN-SPAM Act!
