In this post, we would like to share about the most searched numbers in the first week of September with you.
Let´s go trough the most searched numbers!
New Sky: BT asking to add the telephone number of the New Sky business to add to the BT directory free of charge.
Dear tellows fellows, we love staying in touch with you and always keep you informed about new events on our blog. Today we want to talk about online trading because there are tons of reports about companies proposing how to make money online using their trading product or simply offering a trading academy.
Let´s see some examples…
Waleed:“I got a call from this number the caller was aggressive and better described as rude. She tried to insist on taking about trading and that I appeared in her website. When I told her not interested she made a comment “what you don’t like my voice”and this is when I just told her this is the end of the call and hung up”
Sten: “Aggressive, too insisting and offensive”
Three years since UK’s Information Communication Office has been given the power to impose a fine of up to £500,000, only two firms have been prosecuted so far. This is the situation despite the staggering increase in the number of complaints received between April and October last year, totalling to 100,000 – a far cry from the 30,000 reports in 2012.
One of these companies is First Financial, which was fined £175,000 after sending millions of spam texts to promote its website using unregistered sim cards.
