A Burnaby, B.C., man who was slapped with a $7,000 Fido cellphone bill mistakenly racked up in his name says he has been trying for a year to clear it.
Since February 2008, Paul Babstock and his wife, Diana Costanzino, have been dogged with numerous phone calls, sometimes up to 12 a day, from two collection agencies seeking the amount.
The couple contend it's impossible Babstock could have racked up the hefty sum.
"At the time, I had never owned a cellphone," Babstock said.
