We received an invoice from Central Supply Center but did not pay it as we determined it was a scam.  Thanks for letting others know, Jeff.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Toner Scammers back in business


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.
