Do Not Call complaints mostly against property, retail, finance sectors in Singapore
OVER the past two years, the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) has received about 9,700 valid Do Not Call complaints against some 1,500 companies in Singapore.
These companies were mostly from the property, retail, and financial sectors, Minister for Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim told Parliament on Monday.
Dr Yaacob also said that the PDPC's investigation revealed that most companies which flouted the DNC rules did not clearly understand the requirements of the rules and how to comply with them.
The PDPC has also received some 26,500 complaints on messages relating to illegal activities, such as unlicensed money lending and illegal gambling. These complaints have been referred to the police.
