I get loads of email from recruitment companies trying to get me to hire people. One particularly annoying bunch are Huxley Associates.
So I sent them a reply stating that they are not to send any more unsolicited marketing emails, as per section 22(3)(c) of The Privacy and Electronic
Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. They even replied to that email asking if I had previously been in touch about this, thus proving they had received it.
A couple of weeks later, and another junk email from them. So I am invoicing them for damages. Only £5 for now. It is more of the principle of the thing in this case. I have made it very clear that we'll pursue this through the county courts.
I am in the middle of invoicing them when I get a junk call from another recruitment company, think it was "ITT" or something, who had no clue they were meant to check with the TPS before making junk calls, and then refused to give me their details so I can sue them...
Ironically, this story does not really fit the definition of the word "irony", even though many would think it should.
I'll let you know if we get the £5 :-)
