I have at last the opportunity to complain to the ASA and to the IC
regarding UCE under 2002/58/EC.
I received the following message yesterday on my batphone (I am an
individual subscriber on my batphone), and have NEVER opted in to receive
any text messages from any service, nor do I have even the smallest prior
relationship to allow "soft opt in".
"You are a winner you have been specially selected to receive £1000 cash or
a £2000 award. Speak to a live operator to claim call 08714712377 9am-7pm.
I have already lodged the complaint on the ASA's website. That was the easy
I am about to go through the same process on the IC's site to get the
(presumably) 5 page form to complain.
Vodafone (I am a voda customer) have an awesome process for stopping spam
SMS, and I will be working with them as well, but I am very interested in
the IC and ASA elements
I will keep you all posted with the process
