While government officers might still be struggling to learn to use email, it’s ironic to see a bunch of companies getting into aggressive e-marketing campaigns. Spam! Yes, that is the word to use.

On 25 November 2015, I wrote to Dr Kaleem Usmani, Assistant Manager of CERT-MU, asking his advice on the provisions of law regarding unsolicited messages. I haven’t receive any reply till now.

Since the past several weeks I received emails by companies like APC-Marketing, Inbox Marketing etc; promoting various products & services which are of no interest to me.

If I did not subscribe to your list, then I do not want to be a recipient of your mass email campaigns.

Spam in Mauritius, APC Marketing

In particular, APC Marketing has been using different email addresses to send out spam, among which are, prosign@intnet.mu, apcltdmarketing5@gmail.com and apcadvert@gmail.com. Are these companies breaking the law by spamming people? I await Dr Usmani’s advice to write more :)
