BT fined for five million spam emails
BT has been fined £77,000 by the Information Commissioner's Office, after it sent nearly five million nuisance emails to customers. The 4.9 million emails, sent between December 2015 and November 2015, promoted three charities. BT said it was "Disappointed" by the ICO's decision to impose a fine. "This relates to emails concerning charitable fundraising that were sent to some of our customers in 2015-16," it said in a statement. "There was no financial benefit to BT and minimal impact on customers - in fact, almost five million emails elicited just one complaint".
