Fido Bill Reflects Incorrect Data Usage, huh?

Okay, so I get my fido bill and it says I used a gig of data in one day. Is that even possible?


My phone has a data usage tracker, and it barely hit 500MBs for that entire month.


Fido customer service was no help. Guy kept telling me I must have tethered (which isn't allowed with my data plan) or watched movies (I don't, ever).


So Fido is making me pay $50 for data I know I didn't use. My question: how did this happen? Can I prevent this from happening again, or can Fido put random numbers in my data usage bill when they're short on cash? 


Also, is anyone else experiencing this issue?
