What happens if you get caught spamming?


I recently wrote a post on the definition of spam in a 21st Century marketing context which touched on the topic of what happens if you get caught spamming in Australia. The process is similar in most western countries. In case you don’t want to read the whole thing, here’s a quick summary:

  1. You generally get an official warning from the Australian Communications and Media Authority first, but;
  2. There are fines of up to $220,000 per day for a first offence for a business entity
  3. Do it again and you risk a range of harsh penalties, you’ll get an infringement notice and we’re talking anything from a few thousand to a few million dollars: read some case studies here
