80,000 People Are Still Eligible For Compensation Under A Class-Action Suit Against Rogers
The people behind a $26-million class-action lawsuit against Rogers Wireless Communications are looking for "some 80,000 people" who haven't claimed their reimbursement from the company.
The lawsuit concerned the "Early Termination Fee (ETF) of contracts paid between February 2008 and June 2013, which were found to be abusive," according to a February 1 press release.

The release says some "eight million dollars are sitting in the bank" waiting for anyone who is eligible to claim their compensation.
Depending on the type of service eligible individuals received from Rogers between 2008 and 2013, they could be entitled to receive compensation of $42.70, $102.86 or $327.91.
A "media campaign," including SMS messages to still-active phone numbers, is now underway to contact those affected and "invite them to claim their compensation."
No documents are required to receive compensation, but claimants need to meet the following criteria:
"You entered into a wireless phone contract with Rogers Wireless Communications between January 1, 2007, and June 30, 2010."
"You ended (terminated) the contract before the end of its term."
"You paid the Early Termination Fee (between February 21, 2008, and June 30, 2013)."
Members of the class can verify their eligibility at Monbras.ca.
