Senators say no to spam on cell phones

Senators say no to spam on cell phones
Everyone has been targeted when it comes to spam. From e-mails to pop-ups, there is no denying that it is a constant nuisance. But for some using mobile phones, especially if they don’t have a text messaging plan, it may become both a concern due to monetary charges being incurred. Two U.S. senators, Olympia Snowe of Maine and Bill Nelson of Florida, introduced the m-SPAN Act that updates the CAN-SPAM law. It would allow the FCC and FTC to go after SMS spammers while making it illegal to send marketing SMS to any numbers listed on the national Do-Not-Call list. Even if you have an unlimited messaging plan, we’re confident that you don’t want random messages trying to sell you something you don’t want. But it’s even worse for anyone who is on the pay-as-you-go rates which can incur some hefty bills if not taken care of right away.
