ICO raids house in hunt for dodgy data sellers | DBM | Database MarketingBy
Wow! The “Information Commissioner’s Office” in the UK is pretty serious. Here they are raiding a house looking for suspected peddler’s of lists . “It is thought that people living at the address could be selling data lists to marketing companies to be used in making nuisance calls.”
Since telemarketing is basically illegal, I suppose this makes sense, but it does seem an odd allocation of resources. On the other hand, the home is the castle! Rule Britannia!
