Tagged.com Now Fighting Spam, Instead of Sending It?
Is this a case of the pot calling the kettle black, or a heart-warming story of a bad guy that’s now fighting evil?
Social network Tagged.com has been the subject of many email spamming complaints in its life. Now the company has been awarded $210,975 in a default judgment against a spammer.
In a ruling issued earlier this week, a U.S. District Court Judge in the northern district of California found Vogeler guilty of sending messages to 6,079 Tagged users and assessed damages of $25 per violation for a total of $151,975. Court also ordered Vogeler to pay Tagged $50,000 in attorneys’ fees and to cease sending commercial emails through Tagged.com.
That money will go a long way towards covering the $750,000 in fines the company had to cough up in November of last year.
Is this a case of no honor among thieves or has Tagged.com turned over a new leaf?
