The Information Commissioner’s Office has fined AMS Marketing Ltd £100,000 for making 75,649 nuisance calls.

"AMS Marketing Ltd, of Peacehaven, made the calls to people who had opted out of receiving marketing calls by registering with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS)."

In their judgement the ICO points out that:

"Under regulation 26 of PECR, the Commissioner is required to maintain a register of numbers allocated to subscribers who have notified them that they do not wish, for the time being, to receive unsolicited calls for direct marketing purposes on those lines."

Anyone receiving marketing calls once they've registered with the TPS should contact the TPS or ICO to notify them of the infringement. You can read more about this judgement here: https://ico.org.uk/action-weve-taken/enforcement/ams-marketing-ltd/
