For the latest Do Not Call Register news and updates.
Sumo Power Pty Ltd has paid a $46,200 infringement notice in the latest Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) enforcement action on unlawful telemarketing.
The ACMA has filed proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Balaska Pty Ltd, a solar business, and V Marketing Pty Ltd, a call centre, and their respective Directors, alleging breaches of telemarketing laws.
Primus Telecommunications Pty Ltd and iSelect Limited have each paid infringement notices of $8,400 and Dodo Services Pty Ltd has been formally warned, for telemarketing to consumers after they had withdrawn their consent.
Telcos are on notice: the ACMA has told telco providers to lift their game when it comes to the proper handling of customer complaints. ‘Consumers have a right to expect that complaints to their telco provider will be heard, acknowledged and answered,’ said ACMA Chair Nerida O’Loughlin. ‘It’s unacceptable for customer complaints not to be dealt with promptly.’ This comes after an ACMA investigation found an Australian telco contravened multiple provisions of the Complaints Handling Industry Standard. If consumers feel their complaint is not being heard, they can escalate it to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman by calling 1800 062 058.
