TONER SCAMMER'S ARE AT IT AGAIN
Well we've seen this before in Alberta haven't we? Like roaches that just can't be exterminated completely, every few months toner scammers, or toner pirates as we call them, rear their ugly phone scam in an attempt to steal money from hard working peeople.
Don't fall victom to this old scam... please!
A TONER SCAMMER SCENARIO
"Hello, this is Sylvia and I am your toner supplier."
"I'm giving you a courtesy call to let you know there is a price increase coming at the end of this month so I want to give you an opportunity to stock up on your toner before the price increase. Can I send you over a 3 month supply?"
"Also we are running a promotion this month and if your order exceeds $2,000 we will include free shipping, plus throw in a brand new iPad for you!"
These toner pirates will call, fax, or email your office to obtain some basic information about your equipment from an unsuspecting employee and then send out an order confirmation for toner.
They will ask for a credit card or purchase order with the ruse that you are getting a special discount, free shipping, and sometimes a prize like a free iPad for placing the order.
Several of our customers have fallen prey to this vile scam in the past and there is little or no recourse to send back the toner and recover their money – if it indeed the toner even arrives. We hope we've gotten the word out this time.
