The reality of the telecommunications game is that it is entirely stacked in favour of the corporation. The worst offender by far is Telus Communications.
To describe Telus as hostile, parasitic, predatory, fraudulent, coersive and borderline criminal would be not only putting it mildly but a gross understatement.
The system of payments as detailed through Telebanking and through payment at the financial institution you deal with is where the fraud begins, and when one examines the actions of Telus that is what they are doing, fraudulently billing amounts of money not owed and charging interest not only not owed but charging interest on monies not owed. Once your payment is made through telebanking or in person at the bank there is less than 48 hours elapsed before Telus receives its funds through the bank it deals with, the Royal Bank. At this point, once Telus has the funds the Royal bank sometimes takes 3 to 10 days additionally to apply the funds to your account. Any questions raised aboout the whereabouts of your money and Telus simply points its finger at your bank as the party responsible for the delay. Then, as a result you the customer is not given the benefit of interest paid and owed on your money in addition you are then charged interest and fees on your outstanding balance. The reality is that few people know about this manipulation and Telus has been running this policy for years. It has made Telus millions and millions of dollars, defrauded from its customers.
More dangerously and to the detriment of its customers safety and financial security Telus has sold all your personal information to call centers in the Phillipines. Every time you call directory assistance or customer service with Telus you are directed, 97 percent of the times called, to a foreign call center where non- Canadians have access to all of your personal information including all your banking information and your address. In recent months and years since this outsourcing has taken place hundreds of Telus customers have had their bank accounts and credit cards looted by employees of these foreign call centers. This is done with virtual impunity as none of the Canadian laws regarding theft, fraud and the theft of personal information applies to foreign Telus workers. The senior corporate echelons of Telus are well aware of the criminal acts commited against its customers as a result of its outsourcing and negligence but have taken a "hush-hush" "don't ask don't tell" policy. The numbers reflect that thousands of Telus customers have been defrauded with no recourse against Telus.
In short the service at Telus has gotten worse and worse. The Telus corporation has now embarked on one of the most grievious acts of censureship possible. When a website appears that is highly critical of the fraudulaent and negligent actions of Telus, the internet ip address of that website is placed on a "no show" list. This means that when you try to access it or do a Google search using Telus as your ISP the website will not be listed. This is Big Brother in action and is commonmplace at Telus daily.
In short, your best interests are not served by Telus. They rountinely place your safety in danger by selling your personal information. Telus has covered up and continues to cover up the thousands of customers harmed by its negligence.
Do not do business with Telus. It is something you will regret
