Interesting indeed. Shows how lame law enforcement in most "civilized" countries is. Sending spam is illegal in many countries, the related sales and financial transactions probably in even more. So even if law enforcement of the 3 "less civilized" countries in questions doesn't co-operate, I think Visa, Mastercard, our local banks issuing our cards all seem to act as an accessory to fraud as each time they process such a tramsaction.
Needless to mention the high-standing corporate ethics of Mastercard etc. They denied to process payments for Wikileaks, but they happily continue to earn with spam-related selling of illegal goods.
If media would write as much about spam as about wikileaks and show the connection we would all get rid of the pain very easily. Just a few IT guys earning their living on spam protection would need to look for new job.
