The ICO is taking action against two more cold call blocking companies, continuing the crackdown on nuisance calls.

 

Poole-based Nuisance Call Blocker Ltd has been fined £90,000 and Telecom Protection Service Ltd, based in Bournemouth, has received an £80,000 fine. Both companies were found to be making unsolicited marketing calls to people registered on the official Telephone Preference Service while trying to sell products and services to block the type of cold calls they were making.

Fines of any amount against these type of companies will always be ineffective. They'll simply liquidate the company and reopen under a different name. There needs to be fines against individual directors of these companies, sufficiently punitive to bankrupt these scumbags, seize their assets and render them penniless and homeless.

They used to ring me regularly, when i got fed up with them and told them where to go they phoned me back and threatened me.
