Canadian mobe firm sued over disappearing husband
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. ®
Fucking hell, Andus.
Re: Loosing her job and needing medical treatment?
People can get very upset when their marriages break down for whatever reason, and the resulting state they get into can lead to other problems such as the loss of their job in a sort of snowball effect. Medical treatment isn't uncommon in such circumstances. I suppose this is either difficult for you to understand, or you can't be arsed because it's less fun.
BTW, 'losing', you silly arse.
A little naive
It is not uncommon for companies to send documents to the wrong person - in fact it happens all too frequently. So to suggest there must have been a link is a little naive - it is likely they were bundled simply because they both lived at the same address.
Affair aside (which I don't condone) her personal account statements should not have been bundled with her husband's, period - so yes Rogers are liable in my mind.
Let us look at this from a slightly different angle. Say she had been using the phone to get counselling for domestic/spousal abuse and her husband found out and killed her in a fit of rage - would that not be Roger's liability either?
My point is, what she was doing with this private phone is completely irrelevant - it was registered under her name and therefore should not have been sent to her husband - period.
And just a quick reply to the first comment - learn to read you idiot, the title of the article clearly states "CANADIAN" so your american comment just made you look stupid.
