A claims firm that bombarded consumers with more than 1.3 million spam messages has been fined £80,000 as part of a wider crackdown against companies behind nuisance calls and texts.

 

 

UKMS Money Solutions (UKMS) used lists of mobile phone numbers it had bought from data brokers to contact people encouraging them to make claims for payment protection insurance (PPI), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said.

 

 

It said the fine issued to the firm was the first of three penalties totalling £250,000 it will issue this week to companies behind nuisance texts and calls, bringing the total number of fines issued over the last four months over nuisance marketing to £1m.

 

 

The ICO said Birmingham-based UKMS did not check that those it called had agreed to receive marketing texts – something it was legally required to do.

 

 

It said a total of 1,442 people complained during the nine-week campaign between April and June this year.

 

 

No one from UKMS could be reached for comment.
