She explains : “The crackdown on fraud controlled 1,000 establishments last year following consumer reports in sectors such as banking, insurance, mail-order companies or the energy renovation sector, for example. Result? Among 77 companies were penalized for abusive canvassing for a total amount of € 2,300,000. This figure has tripled in 1 year “. In 2016, the government had set up Bloctel, a device that had failed to protect French people from telephone canvassing.
