  • Cold-calling company fined £225,000

    News release: 18 June 2013

    The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has today issued two monetary penalties totalling £225,000 to two companies at the centre of the BBC Three programme ‘The Call Centre’. The penalties include the first penalty issued against a company linked to nuisance calls relating to Payment Protection Insurance (PPI).
    Nationwide Energy Services has received a penalty of £125,000, and We Claim You Gain £100,000 - both companies are part of Save Britain Money Ltd based in Swansea. The penalties were issued after the companies were found to be responsible for over 2,700 complaints to the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) or reports to the ICO using its online survey, between 26 May 2011 and end of December 2012.

      We Claim U Gain Ltd are also now under investigation by MOJ.


      They're based in Swansea. How odd?

      I like your pin shot
      I keep it with your letter
      Done up in blueprint blue
      It sure looks good on you
      And when you smile for the camera
      I know I'll love you better

      Then the shutter falls
      You see it all in 3-D
      It's your favorite foreign movie
