Rogers Wireless. Have fun with that

A disgruntled woman is suing Canadian telco Rogers Wireless for destroying her marriage.

The mobile provider bundled her cellphone bill in with bills for internet access and cable TV which it sent to her husband.

He opened the bill and found she had made several hour-long calls to one number. Hubby called this number and spoke to the person who answered. What he discovered caused him to leave the family home and the couple's two children.

“The husband used the previously private and confidential information that the defendant unilaterally disclosed to the husband to inquire about the people that the plaintiff was telephoning and the nature of such calls,” according to court documents seen by the Toronto Star.

The woman told the paper the affair only lasted a few weeks. She said she was embarrassed and ashamed over what had happened, but did not deserve to lose her life over it. She asked that her husband's name was kept out of any report.

The documents also claim that the woman's account was in her maiden name and was then included in the account under her husband's name.

Rogers Wireless denies charges of invasion of privacy and breach of contract.

The incident eventually led to the woman at the centre of the case losing her job and requiring medical attention. She is seeking $600,000. ®
