WASHINGTON - The U.S. Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday that it had sued six junk e-mailers who bombarded Internet users with illegal pyramid schemes, fraudulent loans and e-mail filters that actually attracted more ''spam.''
The announcement came as other state and federal law-enforcement authorities in the Northeastern United States announced actions of their own as part of a concerted effort to cut down on deceptive spamming and other illegal behavior on the Internet.
''All of us are combining our resources to combat deceptive spam and Internet scams,'' said Barbara Anthony, regional director for the FTC at a press conference in Boston.
The FTC coordinated similar efforts in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest earlier this year.
