People are being bombarded with unsolicited calls and texts, especially from PPI and Personal Injury companies.
Back in December an official task force – chaired by Which? – outlined 15 recommendations for action on nuisance calls and texts.
But our analysis of data from the Information Commissioner’s Office shows that since the task force reported, there have been around 61,500 official complaints about nuisance calls and texts.
With just 2% of people who receive unwanted calls reporting them to the regulator, the true figure is in the millions.
We are campaigning for:
the Government to make top staff legally accountable for their company's nuisance calls, and require businesses to show their number when they call. Our new research found that eight in 10 people support greater accountability over nuisance calls, including directors being personally fined if their company breaks the rules.
businesses to support our campaign by making a public commitment to tackle nuisance calls
regulators to give people more power by putting them in control of how their personal data is used.
