Penalty for energy company for illegal telephone advertising
The German utility ENERGYsparks GmbH issued a fine of 300.000€. The company engaged in aggressive telephone advertising without the consent of the persons concerned. Even after repeated hearings by the Federal Network Agency, this practice was not changed. In addition, the utility used call centers, which had already been punished for their illegal calling practices, for marketing purposes.
