Cell Phone Affair: Gabriella Nagy and Rogers Debate

We have an interesting article to show you now, in which one woman is suing Canadian provider Rogers for ‘exposing’ her affair to her husband. We want your views on who is right and who is wrong in this instance.

As reported from Huffington Post, Gabriella Nagy has been named as the woman who is taking Rogers to court, seeking $600,000 for “invasion of privacy and breach of contract – or destroying her marriage as she puts it.

It all happened when her husband found out via monthly bills from Rogers that one number in particular was called the most, prompting her husband to do some detective work and eventually find out that Nagy was participating in some out-of-home activities.

According to Nagy, her name should of been on the monthly bill letters from Rogers based on the contract terms, but the letters actually arrvied to her husband, which led to him finding out.

Here is what Nagy had to say on the matter in a recent statement released: “I want others to know what a big corporation has done. I trusted Rogers with my personal information. We had a contract — and agreement that put my life right in their hands.”

Meanwhile, Rogers has hit back saying that Nagy alone was responsible for what happened in her private life, and not them.

What are your thoughts for this? How can this woman blame Rogers for her act of infidelity?

Sorry – had to break this up into multiple parts as the system would not accept one big long post: Another slob looking for a free lunch. I worked in a call centre for a different cell phone company. I don't know what Rogers' verification policies are regarding bill consolidation or other aspects of working on an account, but our company had verification methods in place for people to work on accounts where they were not the account holders (verifying personal information on the account such as the SSN (it is an American company) and account number, or providing the… Read more »

Sounds about right. This is what people do in todays society. They blame others. No one likes to be accountable for there actions. Forget teh fact that she was having an affair and forget teh fact that the company sent the statement to the wrong person. The marriage broke up and she doesn't understand why. It has to be because the statement was sent to her husband. The blame game going on here. Happens all the time. Her marriage fell apart plain and simple Maybe she needs to look within and see the big picture here instead of pointing fingers… Read more »

Since Helen C. Hafen appears to know so much about the case, to the point of even outlining the structure of the intended damage claims, it seems obvious to me that she must be Gabriella's lawyer and/or a hard core feminist.

I think Rogers is guilty of third party disclosure to Gabriella's husband and her lover. I also think they are co-conspirators to identity fraud and misrepresentation of Gabriella, their client. I do not think Gabriella's husband would have left her for two reasons. One, he did not previously know about the affair and may not have ever found out if Rogers had not disclosed the information. Two, her lover harrassed her and her husband causing them pain and suffering after the second third party disclosure by Rogers. A fact, not all men leave their wives due to extra-marital affairs. Rogers… Read more »

Our ways really do find us out and Rogers was the one used to bring the affair out. If it wasn't Rogers it would of been something else. The real issue is her ways, yes Rogers over stepped but it was her choices that had a huge part to play in her marriage ending.

She has made a mistake in trying to include the loss of her marriage in this suit. As she is the person who is bring the case forward she will have to prove that the bills were consolidated based on the act of her cell phone company allow. That is that the bills were consolidated without her or her husbands consent.

The breach of privacy is a stretch. She lived with her husband. There is limited privacy in a marriage. Even if Rogers didn't consolidate the bills it is still possible that her husband would have uncovered her indiscretion.

Yes she should take responsibility for her actions. Yes the marriage would've probably been over at some point anyway and YES the phone company should be held financially liable for mishandling her personal information. As more and more information becomes available from more and more places it is ridiculaous the impunity with which major corporations treat out private health, and financial information. Credit reporting agencies are obscene. They chareg us to view and monitor our own information, they charge institutions to use it, and they have no oliability whatsoever for getting it worng. The corporate tempermant needs to be changed

If she was so worried about her husband finding out about the affair, why did she not have the bill sent to her job. There had to be a reason for the husband opening the letter from the phone company. The last time I signed a cell contract, there wasnt a question asking if i were married or single. So the husbands name had to be somewhere on the envelope. My wife gets mail all the time with just her name on it that i dont open, but anything that has both our names on it, I open.

…I see where she is coming from regarding her privacy. If her home address is different from the one on her contract then she may have something. If she was having it sent to her home which is that same address her husband has his bill sent to… I think she has nothing…. but this… all is still grasping at straws…

This is so sad. What is the world coming to where we think that others are responsible for our actions. First, don't have an affair and you won't have something to hide. Second, in my marriage, if my husband was getting a bill in his name I have every right to open it as he does. if you have something to hide, why would you have the evidence mailed to your home where you could get caught?!?. Third, how'd they get his name to put on the bill? Perhaps she provided it which falls under the 2nd point ~ why… Read more »

Rogers is in no way, shape, or form responsible for this woman's infidelity.

Assuming that the two lived together in the same household, it would not be surprising that the envelope could be opened by either spouse, deliberately or accidentally.
The lady should have been more careful. Legally the break-up might be considered as "consequential damage" even if the envelope had been addressed to the husband rather than the wife. In most contracts there are disclaimers to protect a company against consequential damages.

We are in the day & age where everyone else is to blame for our mistakes.
If someone is having an affair, it is just a matter of time before they are exposed.
Therefore what one does in a case such as this, is to sue the first person or company that exposes their secret. In this case it was Rogers. To the one in the wrong it is a win win situation. Either the spouse will forgive you & take you back.
Or, you lose the spouse, but are well compensated so that you never have to work again.

We only have her word on the contract issue and we now all know that her word is not worth very much.

Since there are two sides to every story we'll have to wait for the outcome. In the court of public opinion however, I do believe that this woman, in spite of her chuzpa, has lost.

Nagy is not blaming the phone company for affair, but for the breach of her privacy! When someone opens ANY account, they must provide personal information they would not provide if not required by the company. This does not give the company the right to provide this information to anyone else. To indicate it is not the customer's right to expect privacy is scarey as it could open a pandora's box to other mandatory information requested from people. I sincerely hope intelligence and sense prevail!

Let me get this straight. . .she's blaming someone else for something SHE did? Suppose the situation was reversed. If she discovered her husband was having an affair, would she blame the wireless provider, or would she blame HIM? Rogers Wireless never told the husband about his wife's infidelity; he discovered the truth on his own. This is just another example of women refusing to accept blame or responsibility for something that is obviously their own fault. I predict she will lose her lawsuit next.

First of all I don't believe Rodgers Wireless should be held accountable for her marriage falling apart. In the long run it probabley would have ended anyway. But I do feel Rodgers Wireless should be accountable for sending her personal information to another address than where she requested it be sent. It really does not matter if its a family member or best friend, your bills, statements, etc. should be sent to the address you as the consumer requested.

Her screwing around broke up the marriage – nothing to do with the tel. co. She is only peed off cause she got caught.
Just another greedy person, not taking responsibility for her own actions, and blaming others

If you dance to the music, you pay to the piper. Don't blame the cell company for what you do. a cheater get caught and then go on to the next one. Stop trying to get paid for your wrong doing.
