Claim farming text spammers hit by huge fine

Published on:

The breaking news today is that the owners of a marketing company have received a massive fine by the Information Commissioner’s Office [ICO] after they sent literally millions of spam to texts the general public.

Gary McNeish and Christopher Niebel, who own Stockport and Birmingham based Tetrus Telecoms were fined £440,000 after a lengthy investigation lasting 18 months, as part of the ICO’s crackdown on illegal marketing. Up to 840,000 spam texts were being sent by the company each and every day – largely related to PPI and accident compensation claims. None of the texts apparently identified the sender.

It is estimated that the business was producing income of up to £8000 each and every day solely from these illegal texts – making their money by selling personal information, often to claims management companies. The fine of £440,000, therefore,  only represents around two months income for the pair.

If you receive illegal spam texts trying to persuade you to claim compensation – why not  join the 60,000 people who have already reported spam texts on the ICO’s website at http://www.ico.gov.uk/complaints/marketing.aspx – where you can report these parasite spammers online. hope they can profit by selling personal information to claims management companies and other marketing organisations.
