hi all:
these folks, or similar scammers, have called us at least three times in the past year.
they always ask for the serial number off our photocopier.
we ask for their ricoh badge # and get immediately disconnected.
they still keep trying, though...

I don’t know if there is a connection, but both happened closely following orders of remanufactured toner cartridges.    I took our two invoices (one for Manzanita Library, one of our branches and one for Banks Library not us) to the Post Office and reported mail fraud, I hope they take it seriously.    Jessica     Jessica Darling Library Assistant 3 Tillamook County Library 503-842-4792 ext. 1756 jdarling at co.tillamook.or.us        From: Libs-Or [mailto:libs-or-bounces at listsmart.osl.state.or.us]On Behalf Of Jeff Weiss

Subject: [Libs-Or] Toner Scammers back in business    Hello,    As a heads up, famous criminal scammer Sandra Steinmetz and her co-conspirators Krystle Lester and Brittany Herstch (currently under state indictment in Iowa) are back in "business". Her basic scam is to send out toner invoices to libraries, government agencies, and businesses in hopes that they get paid for nonexistent sales. She's been doing this for at least 20 years under a variety of fake business names. The current names are Central Supply Center, Elite Supplies and Central Supply Solutions.    Be on the lookout for these invoices as they will show up in the mail. She's apparently targeting Oregon now. We got an invoice today which will be going into the appropriate file.    https://www.iowaattorneygeneral.gov/newsroom/miller-files-consumer-fraud-lawsuit-against-alleged-california-toner-pirates/
