Which? response to ICO fine for nuisance calls

A Scottish company has been fined £90,000 by the Information Commissioner for unwanted marketing calls.

Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:

“We’re pleased to see the Information Commissioner taking more action, but this small fine is far from the sort of deterrent needed to call time on the use of nuisance calls and texts.

“With seven in 10 people receiving an unsolicited call in the last three months it’s clear that the current approach to enforcement isn’t working and much tougher action is needed. That’s why our new campaign calls on all of the relevant regulators to set up a joint task force to properly police and punish those responsible for nuisance calls and texts.”
