Nuisance callers to be fined

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2018-09-10
As from today, cold callers will have to check if the recipients have given consent, says the Spartment for Culture Media and Sport.

“Today we are one step closer to ending the menace of nuisance calls,” says digital minister Margot James, “our new laws mean people will now have to give consent to receive calls and have the power to choose where they seek compensation for personal injury claims or mis sold payment protection insurance. This is a big boost for the Information Commissioner’s Office and will help them crack down on the cold call sharks.”

Previously people had to ‘opt-out’ of receiving such calls by registering with the free Telephone Preference Service or withdraw their consent while on the call.

However, the new powers will force the caller to make the necessary checks to make sure they have the recipient’s consent before calling.

Fines of up to half a million pounds can be imposed by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

If people receive nuisance calls they can report it to the ICO who will investigate and take action against those responsible
