Taking pictures of business cards?

Has anyone made any money from this? It does sound rather suspicious.

    Do you mean taking pictures and passing on the data to a third person/organisation? Thereby passing on personal information without consent.

    This does seem to be the job, yes.

    Ah seems to be a way of getting around the Data Protection Law. Or does it get around it?

    Is business card data "personal"?

    Who on earth would pay for this kind of data? Presumably it is largely in the public domain already, what with businesses wanting to advertise themselves.

    If it relates to a named individual, yes.

    And business cards often have direct phone numbers and email addresses for executives.
    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.
