Another cold calling firm receives a heavy fine

A company calling themselves the National Advice Clinic made almost six million nuisance calls in the space of six months.

This fine is particularly important because many of those contacted by the company, which also trades as the Industrial Hearing Clinic and the Central Compensation Office, were on the Telephone Preference Service which is supposed to stop people receiving unsolicited cold calls.

As a result, almost 2,000 complaints were made to the industry regulator Ofcom.

They have been fined £850,000.

More info, as ever, here.
