Canadian Actress in Tech Support Hostage Drama
Haven't we all wanted to do this, at one time or another? This year I had two different internet service providers (one I didn't even use) charge me $150+ each for modems I never asked for...however, I really don't think this was the best solution.
After calling Aliant over 20 times and being told the problem was on her end, a Canadian actress impersonated a male on the phone and had a technician sent out the next day. When he arrived and claimed he couldn't fix her problem, police allege she went on a tirade, claimed she had a gun and tried to keep him in her house until he 'fixed the problem'
Finally Sinclair said she resorted to impersonating a man's voice and got a repairman sent out the next day, a "huge, strapping young man", 21 year-old David Scott.
Sinclair said that when he couldn't fix the problem she asked him to stay until a second technician was sent.
However, local police disagree with the woman's version of the events.
"She told the technician, in a tirade, that he was not leaving until her internet was working and she told him she was keeping him hostage," said Constable Jeff Carr. "She implied that she had a gun, although he didn't see one."
