If that's the case, I'm not quite sure why 3-6 of your original post are a complaint if you agreed to it - could you explain?

It's a complaint because this cellphone plan could be offered on its own for $48 WITHOUT a cellphone. There was no reason for them to put a MOTO X on my tab balance other than for the mere reason of pocketing the phone itself. Again, they mentioned I am trading the benefit of receiving a new cellphone for more data, when in reality I am essentially paying an additional $15 monthly on top of that $48 to pay off their MOTO X.

I have to say even though you were being used so they could get a phone, their trick of giving you the saskatchewan plan and then porting it over... your $65 is still a pretty damn good deal for 5GB when everyone here is paying 80+ for the same thing.

When koodo finds out, they'll find out not only were they possible stealing a phone at your expense, but also exploiting the saskatchewan plan loophole.

Since you have the IMEI # you should call it in as stolen and flag it so it's useless

Screw them over

The main point is that the guys weren't transparent with OP. There were no reason for him to pay $65 instead of $48 even if it's a "good deal". If I was in OP's shoes and knew I was getting the SK plan instead of a BC plan, why wouldn't I just do it myself?

It's easy to get the $48 plan. I did it for myself and my brother. If Telus cared, they would've patched the system by now.

The retailer is being a bit shady for sure, but I wouldn't really call it a "scam"
At the end of the day, OP got what he expected ($65/month for 5GB data), didn't he?

Yes, the retailer made money off OP. But they are a business, they are in it to make money, not a charity or a non-profit group to give people free information on how to save money.

The SK plan is a bit of a loop-hole and most people really don't know about it or how to get it. (I didn't, I am paying $100+ for my 5GB!)
They made it easy and do all the work for you, and they made a profit doing so...
Most businesses make money using the same principles (information and convenience)

It is like paying an accountant or someone $100 to file your taxes, when in reality, he just get a tax software for $20 and spend 15 min entering in those numbers from the forms and T4 you gave him.
People who knew about the simple tax software would've done it themselves and save $80, but they didn't, so they paid $100.

^I don't think that logic applies to official resellers for Telus services.. if you go to an official reseller, you expect to get exactly what the parent company offers. They can't just sell you Telus services at random prices and pocket the rest.

Didn't they put a $360 tab on his account? That's money he owes if he cancels.

I agree with them breaking the Telus/Koodo reseller's rules, hence kinda shady.

He was informed of the $15/month (24 months contract) charges if he cancels tho.

Not defending the retailer since what they did definitely break the reseller rules with the service provider.
At the end of the day, I just thought OP got exactly what he asked for. (The SK plan isn't something you can just walk in and get at any Telus store)

In any case, I think they are scamming telus/koodo more than OP.

Yes. I got what I wanted in the end but if Koodo were to catch onto this and cancelled my plan, or if I had to call in for an inquiry, my account could be suspended therefore leaving me with the remainder of the tab.

Yes, everyone needs to make money...that's why we work. We're paying accountants for their time and reliability...it's a service.

You seem to have a fairly decent command of English, so didn't it seem suspicious the second paragraph started with "Plan details is"?

Again. The whole idea of being in an authorized retailer threw me off. Call me stupid

They were marketing for koodo for commission, a service they did by advertising. A free cell phone for the slave work of finding them a new client fee. Parker place contract could be $65 service fee for x service. People sign it and instead of them giving koodo account. They give there own company name as a receipt. Just pay the tax. Flipping koodo marketing. Pulling people from chatr with no data to 5gb and unlimited canada wide, $65 dollars my naga siren. People jump ship to you because you save them money from their ripped off bills. Service fee for doing all the bitch work,"heres your 65 dollar plan".

From the looks of it, Jeffrey Uy canceled anything he had with Koodo and Koodo's area manager is aware of the situation going on @ Easylink.
