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."
