Terror groups cloning Rogers phones

Better keep those cell phones close at hand, and LOCKED. According to the Globe and Mail law professor Susan Drummond received a phone bill for $12,237.60 – 160 times larger than her normal bill – and which primarily consisted of calls to foreign countries that included Pakistan, Libya, Syria, India and Russia. As a result of researching the fraud, Drummond and her partner discovered that phones of senior Rogers executives, including Mr. Rogers himself, were repeatedly “cloned” by terrorist groups that used them to make thousands of overseas calls. Ms. Drummond is apparently pursuing legal action against the cellphone giant, charging that the company can easily spot a fraud-in-progress, yet “lets the meter run.”
