so bell has now perpitrated the biggest f#%^ up of all time!!!!!
if you remember my posts from sept i mentioned how we transferred the line from london to toronto, had a bit of a fiasco w/ that. for some incomprehensible reason they left the line open in london but did not charge us for it. L actually called and asked them to charge for it but they said that that was not possible. they actually refused to bill her for the service.
today, pi recieved a bell bill. keeping in mind that he cancelled his service (including a dsl line he was not paying for and could not use) over a month ago, this was a bit of shock. an even greater shock is the fact that, although he has paid all of his bills up until the time at which he cancelled the service, this bill is for june - sept 2005. also, although the bill is actually in his phone number and in his name there are large long distance charges to numbers that are in the same area code. in fact, to a house that he could walk to in less than half an hr. there is also a call to san francisco and several calls to yellow knife.
needless to say, he is not paying that bill. the calls were not made from his phone number. pi is going to call them on wed to sort it out. i really want to be in on that phone call!!!
