The ICO issued £480,000 of fines to companies making nuisance calls

Regulatory Updates | 27/01/21

The fines were issued to four separate companies for making unlawful calls to numbers registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).

Andy Curry, Head of Investigations at the ICO, said:
“Nuisance calls are an invasion of people’s privacy that can cause great distress and worry, particularly where people have taken steps to protect themselves by signing up to the TPS. We will always take robust action against companies who we find are ignoring the law in pursuit of their own gain”.
