UK’s ICO rides two businesses

The UK’s data protection watchdog raided two businesses suspected of making millions of nuisance calls.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has been investigating the companies, based in Brighton and Birmingham, for a year after receiving roughly 600 complaints about them.

The calls – said to involve road traffic accidents, personal injury claims and household insurance – did not identify the firms or allow people to opt out of receiving them.
