India Makes Arrests In Phishing Scams [bbc.co.uk]
|Police in India say they have arrested six foreign nationals suspected of defrauding hundreds of people using text message and email scams. |
|Mumbai-based internet security specialist Vijay Mukhi said poor enforcement of laws meant spammers could act with impunity. |
"We have an Information Technology Act that was introduced in 2000. But we don't have any convictions under it and it's silent on spam," he said.
"If I'm a spammer, I would rather spam from India to India and the rest of world because nothing will happen to me."
