Definitely Not Jolly Rogers

A $12,000 cell phone bill from Rogers Wireless astounded customer (and lawyer) Susan Drummond

She refused to pay because the calls had been made not by her but by Hezbollah the terrorist organizaton. They had "cloned" her phone -- captured the number and the encrypted security code -- to make hundreds of overseas calls.

According to Toronto's Globe and Mail Ted Rogers and some of his executives have also had their phones cloned.

But Rogers insists Ms Drummond pay the bill (now grown to over $14,000). Her court claim is that the company has the technology to detect unusual patterns of calling so Rogers should have contacted Ms Drummond when the calls began. The company should have immediately cut off the terrorists' use of her phone number.

Now you know what is really meant by a "terrorist cell,"
