FORT SIMPSON, Northwest Territories– A Canadian cable provider ended up in hot water after posting the names of customers with overdue bills.
Senga Services, based in Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories, posted the list on Facebook last week, according to CBC News. It included names and dollar amounts, from $94.25 to $1,406.80.
“We always got excuses from everybody,” Senga Services employee Jennifer Simons told CBC on Dec. 2. “Promissory notes and everything, and it never arrives. So we found the most effective way is to publicly post the names.”
The list has since been removed and the company’s Facebook page is no longer active.
CBC News said the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada asked for the names to be removed.
