The Federal Trade Commission has moved to shut down an illegal spamming operation it says bombarded consumers with millions of text messages, many of which advertised a bogus mortgage modification website called "Loanmod-gov.net."

The FTC has asked a federal judge to freeze the assets of Phillip A. Flora, of Huntington Beach, Calif. Flora, the agency alleges, sent millions of unwanted text messages to consumers, promoting "loan modification" assistance, debt relief, and other related services.
