New measures to beat plague of nuisance calls

 

Directors to be made personally liable to stop them evading fines and punishment.

 

Bosses of companies which plague people with unsolicited nuisance calls could be fined as much as half a million pounds under new proposals to make them personally liable if their firm breaks the law.

 

The UK data protection watchdog revealed last week it had recovered just over half (54 per cent) of the £17.8 million in fines issued for nuisance calls since 2010, as companies go into liquidation to avoid big penalties.

 

This follows latest estimates by Ofcom showing British consumers were bombarded with 3.9 billion nuisance phone calls and texts last year.

Welcome news.

I hope if the directors or ex directors, if they fail to pay, can have assets like houses siezed under the proceeds of crime act, or at the least have an enforcement agent knocking on the front door whilst there Mercedes is clamped.
