“It beggars belief that a firm purporting to stop nuisance calls has been fined for subjecting people to them” – Which? response to £75,000 ICO fine for Cold Call Elimination Ltd

Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd said:

“It beggars belief that a firm purporting to stop nuisance calls has been fined for subjecting people to them.

“The ICO was alerted to this firm’s behaviour after receiving almost 400 complaints from the public, so we urge people to always report nuisance calls and texts to help regulators take action against rogue cold callers. We also want industry to play its part by making senior executives personally accountable if their company makes unlawful calls.”
