A year ago I briefly had a phone plan in Alberta, Canada where I used absolutely zero data and no calling minutes.
I called the phone company in order to cancel the plan on a Saturday, when they responded by saying that I should call them back on a weekday; however, by that point I had left the country to reside in the UK.
I asked for two close family members to handle cancelling the plan, which they agreed to. Needless to say, they did nothing about it, and now a year later I receive an email notice that a collections agency wants over $300.
So here are my questions:
1) Do I have any recourse, prior to the point where I might be sued, that can get me out of paying this amount, or reducing the amount owed?
2) If I were sued, what would being a Canadian citizen living in the United Kingdom change about the suit?
3) As a follow on to number 2, am I less likely to be sued for $300 than if I were still living in Canada?
Thank you very much for you help.
