PHOENIX (AP)--Three people accused of running a huge computer spam operation have been indicted on charges of violating a law aimed at cracking down on unsolicited e-mails, prosecutors said.
James R. Schaffer, Jeffrey A. Kilbride, and Jennifer R. Clason were each charged on Thursday with two counts of fraud and one count of criminal conspiracy under the U.S. law known as CAN-SPAM, short for Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act.
The law, in effect since January 2004, is meant to diminish unsolicited e-mail messages, commonly known as spam.
Kilbride and Schaffer also were charged with transportation of obscene material using a computer service and one count of money laundering.
Money laundering charges could result with prison sentences.....
