United States: If you've noticed a hike in the amount of religious spam in your inbox lately, there's a reason, the scum are exploiting a US loophole that exempts religious groups from bulk e-mail laws.
The growth area in unsolicited e-mail is now messages that contain religious themes. And the bad news is that unlike commercial spam, it's not illegal.
E-mail recipients are increasingly being offered religious salvation through the power of spam, according to security company MessageLabs.
The antispam company has intercepted a large number of spiritual e-mails in the last month. The company says the e-mails are legal because they don't plug products, just religious ideals.
That would be religious ideals like a Christian loan company or offers to get laid via a Chrstian dating service.
