Bell Mobility Gets Sued To The Tune Of $100 Million

Today must have been a very bad day for the execs at Bell Mobility. News came out today that they’re facing a $100 million class action lawsuit:

The allegations, which have not be proven, accuse Bell of engaging in “unfair practices” and of systemically breaching contracts with pre-paid wireless customers by seizing credit balances contrary to Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act.

In particular, the lawsuit alleges that pre-paid wireless services payments are “gift cards” as defined by the act, and cannot have an expiry date.

Now of course, Bell says that there’s no merit to the suit, but we’ll see when this goes to court. Putting my personal feelings about Bell aside, I will be be an interested observer.
