Savers bugged by 100m cold calls

Research by Aviva has found that that nearly 100m cold calls were made about pensions last year, many of which were attempts to scam victims out of their savings. The company said 2.2bn nuisance calls or texts were sent last year in total, most about PPI, injury claims and pension freedoms. The figures come as MPs prepare for the second reading of the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill, which provides an opportunity to ban unsolicited calls.
