It’s nice when David takes on Goliath and wins.  CBC News reports:

A Nova Scotia man says he had to hound Bell TV for the $21,000 owed to him after the communications giant accessed his credit report without permission.

 Rabi Chitrakar, who lives in Beechville, said the cheque was finally couriered to him before Christmas.

“It’s sort of a vindication, a validation that I was always on the right path from the very beginning,” he said.

Chitrakar ordered satellite television in December 2010, but later found out Bell performed a credit check without his consent, potentially damaging his credit rating.

Chitrakar said he wanted an apology and the credit inquiry wiped from his record. Instead, he said, he got the runaround. So he took his case, without a lawyer, to court.
