No further action in phone scandal


by David Allen

A lot of allegations were made during the Ofcom investigations into the phone scandals, which rocked the world of television phone-ins and competitions.

Yet with so much evidence, which goes back to 2005 and continues through to last year, the serious fraud office has decided not to carry out an inquiry into how the viewers were conned out of their hard-earned cash.

The programmes affected by this scandal are wide ranging, including the Eurovision Song Contest, Fame Academy, GMTV and the British Comedy Awards.

The SFO has had enough time to study the reports produced by Ofcom, which may not have been done in the correct way in order for any case to be answered, whereas in fact it would seem that not one of the cases fitted into the SFO’s criteria for mounting an investigation.

The bottom line is that the phone scandal era is now over.
