OPTA fines Dutch spammer €25.000

Sometimes the past comes and pays someone a visit. This happened to me yesterday when I read that Special-T was fined €25.000 for spamming her products. It was the last case did for OPTA, the NL anti-spam enforcer, preparing the process of the visit to the company, interviewing the suspects, and such. Exciting and fun to do.

As this blog is at this moment giving quite some free publicity for this company also, I’ll stop writing here. This is the link to OPTA’s site.

3 March update. OPTA denied the appeal of Special-T and referred the company to the administrative court in Rotterdam. After this stage appeal in the highest instance is possible for Special-T at the appeal court for Industry in The Hague.
