iQor is a very large American corporate collection agency that arrived in Canada a few years ago through the purchase of Equifax. With customers galore they even came to provide collection services for the Ontario Works office here in Peel Region. Eagerly self-empowered with lots of money, a militaristic-sounding name and a brace of high tech data analysis and telecom tools and global intentions it looks like they also began overstepping things. Most recently earning themselves a $500,000 fine from the CRTC for bothering people. All that capital and technology and yet a deficit of basic competence in its application.
