Back in January of 2008 a Quebec judge gave the go ahead for a class-action suit against Bell Canada and Bell Mobility regarding late fees. The case was started by Bell customers Annie Boulerice and Julien Grégoir who claimed they paid their Bell bill on time through a financial institution but were charged late fees. The case was estimated to be worth at least $2 million… but today they have announced they have settled out-of-court.
In a release it states that “An out-of-court settlement has been concluded in the class action filed on behalf of Bell Canada and Bell Mobility clients who may have paid late payment charges on payments made before the payment deadline provided on their bill. This settlement affects Bell Canada clients who paid their bill through their financial institution, and Bell Mobility clients who paid their bill by cheque or through their financial institution, between June 21, 2003 and August 9, 2009.” (more…)
