1. What is Spam?

Spam is commercial email or unsolicited bulk email, including “junk mail”, which has not been requested by the recipient. It is intrusive and often irrelevant or offensive, and it wastes valuable resources. 

Spam messages are the opposite of permission-based email, which are normally anticipated, personal, relevant and/or associated with a pre-existing business or personal relationship. Inappropriate newsgroup activities, consisting of excessive posting of the same materials to several newsgroups, are also deemed to be spam.  

If you must contact thousands of recipients you must do it through permission marketing. A sample of permission  marketing is this: 

1.Prospects see an ad about ways on how to make money online (this is what is called a teaser, where you only state the benefits of the program you are promoting) and you invite them to request more info about it.

2. Then they'd usually fill out a form in a capture page with their personal email and name requesting that you send them more detailed information on your offer. This triggers an autoresponder that will verify that they have asked for the information and once they confirm that, then and only then, they will be instantly redirected to the site of the program you are promoting, in this case myMoneyFish site.

3. What is the “Can Spam” law?

Email marketing is super powerful. Unfortunately, many Internet Marketers abused this privilege. Believe it or not, Spam was one of the fastest growing industries online from 1999-2003. The Federal Government has stepped in and is working to end this.

As Legitimate Internet marketers myMoneyFish applauds the actions of the US Government with the "Can Spam Act of 2003". All legitimate marketers are seeing an increase response from their marketing efforts, and the ones who had been ruining it for us could get heavily fined.

We have included a run down of this law; advise on how to comply, and our legal disclaimers on this page. We recommend you take the time to read before embarking into any mass mailing promotion. 

Here is a brief run down of the law: 

1) The law became effective Jan 1, 2004. 

2) It prohibits using or falsifying email header information.  

3) It prohibits the use of open relay to "deceive or mislead recipients" about the origin of a commercial email.  

4) It prohibits "harvesting," "dictionary attacks" and "spoofing."  

5) It prohibits commercial email without an unsubscribe process. Either a web link or return email address are acceptable for unsubscribing, you have 10 business days to process removal requests.  

6)  It prohibits automated methods to sign up for free Web-based email accounts. (Like Yahoo or Hotmail)  

7) It prohibits registering for "5 or more" email accounts or "2 or more domain names" with false information and using them to send commercial e-mail messages.  

8) It prohibits sending "sexually oriented material" unless it includes a label to be created by the FTC. And, you don't have to do that if it is opt in. (Violations punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine)  

9) The FTC will be producing a report on possible mandated subject line labeling, such as ADV (required in CA) for advertising. As currently drafted, the Can Spam Act requires UCE to carry such information identifying it as an advertisement or solicitation but does not mandate any specific language.4.myMoneyFish Spam Restrictions World-wide
