Thanks to this website, which received a record 256,000 hits last month, I’m getting more complaints and inquiries from readers than ever before.
Many people find me while doing a Google search for a specific subject. Here are the most popular searches in April, according to my website statistics:
— Wholesale energy scam (34)
— Direct Energy (31)
— QuickTax 2008 (31)
— Bell vs Rogers (18)
— Direct Energy scam (13)
— Bell (13)
— Aeroplan vs Air Miles (11)
— CIBC exchange rate (10)
— Rogers (10)
I love the emails that start this way: “I was looking for an ombudsman at Bell … or Rogers… and found your website.” That’s how many folks find their way here. Welcome, everyone. Too bad the telcos don’t believe in hiring an ombudsman.
My readers give me a wealth of material. What I can’t use in my Star columns often goes on this blog. Wish I had more time to do more frequent updates.
I’m posting some of the more interesting or offbeat complaints I’ve received lately. Hope you enjoy reading them.
