Thanks for forwarding the hoax material.  The same theing hit 
Canada last month, only the lawyer was in Toronto instead of 
Virginia.  You might want to check it out first next time (besides, 
the samba list is not the right place anyway).


By US Code Title 47, Sec.227(a)(2)(B), a computer/modem/printer meets
the definition of a telephone fax machine. By Sec.227(b)(1)(C), it is
unlawful to send any unsolicited advertisement to such equipment.
By Sec.227(b)(3)(C), a violation of the aforementioned section is
punishable by action to recover actual monetary loss, or $500,
whichever is greater, for each violation.

In other words,  NO SPAM!!!
