The ICO has issued a monetary penalty of £70,000 to a company responsible for making nuisance payment protection insurance (PPI) claims calls. Despite a warning from the ICO, the company continued  to make calls without checking if any the recipients were registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), leading to 630 complaints to the ICO and TPS over a one year period. This takes the total fines imposed by the ICO for nuisance calls to £500,000.
