Inconvenience invoice for received emails
Posted on 2009-03-28
Are there any laws to protect me here? Basically, like everyone else, I have been receiving numerous emails from automated spammers. But, what if an acutal person enters their information on my web site contact form for me to contact them about their services. Their argument is the fact that they were just sending an introduction of their company along with what they can offer. Is this considered spam?
I read that some companies send an inconvenience invoice in which they invoice them for disruption and inconvenience that they may have caused.
If I outline on my website that they will be charged $15 for inconvenience or disruptions from emails that I consider spam. What enforces that payment to be paid? Is there a law that enforces this for me? Or, what if the person does not pay, what can I do? Can I report them somewhere?
