Attorney General Rob Mckenna’s office has filed one of the first lawsuits against SMS spam against Dinav Holding, a Florida-base company. The company is accused of sending unsolicited text messages promoting their company over a period of two days last May.
“Consumers pay for text messaging in order to stay in touch with family, friends and business contacts — not to receive spam that’s as illegal as it is annoying,” McKenna said in a statement. “Today’s lawsuit is a reminder to spammers that there are consequences for breaking the law.”
This class action lawsuit was just filed earlier this month, so keep an eye on our blog for any updates about this case.
