"For anything that happened since May 2018, ICO could now enforce max fines of € 20M or 4% of turnover, whichever is *larger*, so it will be possible to hurt those scammers much harder."

Which is good, because I keep getting spam mail to $orkplace address.

And when the senders squawk that I must have signed up for it, I'm going to point out that I'm not named "Andrew", "Annabelle", "Annette" or "Aaron", as most of the salutations on the messages are headed - I've had this address more than 20 years, which in most cases is longer than the companies in question have existed.
