It’s very embarrassing for Kiwis that we have big-time spammers amongst us, but the tail end of this news item is a delight [my emphasis]:
Court action is being taken over what NZ and US officials are calling one of the biggest spam email operations in the world.
Three Christchurch men have been named in a civil case filed in New Zealand by Internal Affairs. …
… Lance, who now lives in Australia, is the second man named. The third is Christchurch courier Roland Smits.
Smits told ONE News they will be filing a defence at the Christchurch court. He says lawyers have told them not to talk to anybody about the case but says they haven’t made anything like the millions of dollars claimed by Internal Affairs.
Hah, hah, hah:
Guilty, your honour! That should save some time and costs.
