We have very reliable information that one of our area CE officers located and called one of the more prolific insurance sign spammers. The spammer denied placing the signs was advised to pick them up or suffer the consequences. The signs were left in place and USPS notices were mailed, still no response.
The spammer was called again, and again he denied placing the signs, or receiving the warnings.
Today he was issued court citations for placement of the signs. If he fails to show in court, then itís an entirely different matter. It will then be classified as a Failure to Appear (FTA) and a bench warrant will issued for his arrest. The first time heís stopped in a routine traffic stop, he goes to jail and or has to post bond for release.
Better yet, when the warrants are received by the sherrif's or constable's he can be arrested at home or job. Now that's a real attention getter. Nothing like being hauled off your job in handcuffs and treated like a common criminal.
He can be fined $500 for each sign, since each sign is a separate violation.
Where there's a will, there's a way. Hats off and two thumbs up to the CE officer that is explaining the meaning of NO to another spammer.
