Just in case it's of interest to anyone, here's a link for an article in the Mail about slamming.


  • Ofcom is getting an average of 500 complaints a month from consumers who have found themselves signed up to a new phone service without their permission. Many have merely expressed interest in switching firms during a cold call.

    It's not the phone companies that need to be regulated it's Ofcom.

    How come after so many complaints does it take so long for them to slap the wrists of some firms, come on a slap they need a great whack in the wallet.

    If people are slammed there should be a fixed compensation fine paid to the customer of say £100 on top of any loss incurred, that would make them think before slamming.
