New Laws to Control Nuisance Calls In UK

There is now a ban on nuisance calls from Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) and personal claims injury companies as the government has moved to put a fine of £500,000 on them, for calling without prior permission.  The crackdown on “menace” by the Information Commissioner’s Office now says people have to opt in to be called rather than the previous opt out system.

It has been found, that British adults have received 2.7 billion unsolicited calls, texts and emails offering help to make claims in the past year.  People must report the nuisance calls they receive. The financial regulatory body, the Financial Conduct Authority found an average of 50 per person.  The Which? own research shows seven in ten people may have received nuisance calls in the last month, the company welcomes the new law but hope the government enforces it.
