The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said the company's Carphone Warehouse did not give its staff the right training to give proper advice to customers purchasing the service and were trained to recommend it to customers who already had cover. "Carphone Warehouse sales staff were trained in 'spin selling', where the focus was on persuading customers to purchase Geek Squad and on selling the features of the product," the FCA said http://bit.ly/2Hs9Mby.
Neither Elliott nor Dixons would comment on Tuesday, and the Sky story said the fund’s investigations might come to naught. But there are several reasons why such a move would make sense. Shares in Dixons have fallen about 30 percent over the past year, as the retailer parted ways with its chief executive Sebastian James.
Dixons Carphone (DC.L), Britain's biggest seller of electricals and mobile phones, said it was in good shape to operate effectively in all Brexit scenarios, including the country leaving the European Union without a deal.

If there is, we are as well prepared as we can possibly be," finance chief Jonny Mason told reporters on Tuesday after the firm updated on Christmas trading.

A spokeswoman for Elliott and a spokesman for Dixons Carphone both declined to comment.

European consumer electronics retailer Dixons Carphone's apologetic admission yesterday that a 2017 data breach was in fact considerably worse than it first reported suggests disclosures of major breaches could get a bit more messy -- at least under the early reign of the region's tough new data protection framework, GDPR -- as organizations scramble to comply with requirements to communicate serious breaches "without undue delay". Dixons' handling of this particular security incident has come in for sharp criticism -- and is most certainly not a textbook example of how to proceed. Dixons Carphone disclosed a breach of 5.9M payment cards and 1.2M customer records in mid June, saying it had discovered the unauthorized access to its systems during a security review.
It was the second major cyber attack in three years on the company, which has about 22 million customers in the UK and Ireland. It apologized to customers on Tuesday and said that an investigation into the hacks was nearly complete. "Again, we're disappointed in having fallen short here, and very sorry for any distress we've caused our customers," Chief Executive Officer Alex Baldock said.
The company, which has become the victim of a major cyber attack for the second time in three years, said the investigation is nearly complete and there is now evidence that some of the data may have left its systems. In June, the company said an investigation revealed there was an attempt, going back to July last year, to compromise data on 5.9 million credit cards in one of the processing systems of Currys PC World and Dixons Travel stores. Last month, Britain's National Crime Agency (NCA) said it was heading a criminal investigation into the hack, working with the National Cyber Security Centre, the Financial Conduct Authority and Britain's data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
A Dixons Carphone data breach that was disclosed earlier this summer was worse than initially reported. The company is now saying that personal data of 10 million customers could also have been accessed when its systems were hacked. The European electronics and telecoms retailer believes its systems were accessed by unknown and unauthorized person/s in 2017, although it only disclosed the breach in June, after discovering it during a review of its security systems.
