EarthLink Inc. on Wednesday said a U.S. federal judge has awarded the company a $11 million judgment against a Nevada Internet marketing company, KSTM, for sending millions of illegal mortgage related email advertisements.
The Internet service provider said KSTM sent emails promoting a Web site and used false and misleading header information in its emails that violated the federal CAN-SPAM Act.
Additionally, EarthLink charged KSTM with breaking the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act and state and federal racketeering laws.
