“A bumper £200,000 fine by the ICO should make nuisance callers sit up and take notice,” Which? response to ICO fine given today to green energy company, Home Energy & Lifestyle Management Ltd (HELM)

Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:

“A bumper £200,000 fine by the ICO should make nuisance callers sit up and take notice. We now also need to see senior executives held personally accountable if their organisation makes unlawful calls.

“With the Government looking at making caller line ID mandatory for marketing calls and increased action from regulators, telecoms providers must now play their part and use technological fixes to help cut off nuisance calls.”
