    Email from British Gas - GDPR violation? 14th Sep 18 at 10:36 PM
    I moved from British Gas to EDF in October last year.

    This week I received an email from British Gas inviting me to join their fixed price unlimited energy tariff.

    Surely BG should not be emailing me as I have not given them consent to contact me with marketing communications and I no longer have any commercial relationship with the company?

    You're probably correct. I would appoint a lawyer and seek maximum damages for this horrific abuse of privacy. Be sure to have your evidence to prove never having clicked that life or death checkbox in the past.

    Like really, get a grip. Just unsubscribe, block or ignore.
