Wham bam spam

Australia's Spam Act may have done something to halt the flow of the uninvited domestic email, but little to help with the millions of messages coming from overseas. This report today says that international spamming continues unabated, and has taken a'sinister turn' with Russian crime syndicates now in on the act. Australian telecommunications companies have been told to muscle up to repel the spam invasion.

The estimate is that 73 million spam messages hit Australia daily.

And yes, Nigerian spammers, with all those great offers to share a fortune in return for handing over your bank details, are bigger than ever.
