The Canadian woman suing her mobile operator because her husband discovered her affair through her bill says she has gathered evidence from two fellow adulterers who were caught out the same way.

Gabriela Nagy, wearing a black wig and dark glasses, told journalists she had affidavits blaming Rogers for ruining marriages by the way it bundles itemised mobile charges with home phone and broadband bills.

"Their lives have taken a downfall, loss of jobs, marriages. Some are almost carbon copies of my story. Others have other privacy issues that were breached," she said, the Globe and Mail reports.

A total of about a dozen people had been in touch to sympathise and say their privacy had also been infringed by Rogers.

Nagy's husband left her in August 2007 after discovering her infidelity. She was fired from her job three months later and is now seeking CAN$600,000 in damages from Rogers.

Rogers said it was not responsible for Nagy's affair and that she and her husband had asked for their charges to be consolidated into a single bill. ®
