Summary

The case concerned non-payment of the financial sanction that had been imposed by an earlier Tribunal (case reference: 130464). The previous case, heard on 13 September 2018, concerned a call connection service operating on the number ranges 0871976xxxx and 0871789xxxx (“the Service”) by Tobaji Ltd (the “Level 2 provider”). The Level 1 provider for the Service was Telecoms World Plc (the “Level 1 provider”). 

The Service was a call connection service that offered connection to organisations sought by consumers. The Service cost 13p per minute plus any call connection charges.

Considering all the circumstances of the case, the Tribunal decided to impose the following sanctions: 

  • formal reprimand  
  • a prohibition on the Level 2 provider from providing, or having any involvement in, any premium rate service for a period of five years, from the date of the publication of this decision, or until all sanctions imposed by the Tribunal of 13 September 2018 have been complied with, whichever is the later.

Administrative charge recommendation: 100%
