Fine for Vodafone Germany for illegal marketing calls
The German Federal Network Agency issued a fine for Vodafone Kabel Deutschland GmbH (Vodafone Germany). Vodafone as well as call center and marketing partners working for Vodafone called many people to acquire new customers and convince former customers to resume their usage of the company’s services. These people did not consent to marketing calls, which makes this practice illegal. Furthermore, some customers received up to 30 further calls after disallowing marketing calls. Vodafone Germany had to pay 100.000€ in fines.
