Director gets 8 year ban after millions of nuisance PPI calls
Carmarthen director has been banned for eight years after causing two companies to make almost 221 million unsolicited nuisance PPI phone calls.
Richard Jones (31), from Carmarthen, Wales, was the director of Miss-Sold Products UK Limited and Your Money Rights Limited, the two companies at the centre of investigations by the ICO and the Insolvency Service.
Miss-Sold Products UK Limited was a company Richard Jones used as a vehicle to make unsolicited phone calls contrary to the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations.
The company came to the attention of the ICO after the regulator received 146 complaints between November 2015 and March 2016 about automated phone calls from telephone numbers used by Miss-Sold Products UK.
Isobel Brett, Director, Bretts Business Recovery commented “ There has to be at least a small amount of personal satisfaction associated with this case. Let’s hope it serves as a warning to other unscrupulous firms.”
