Important Note Regarding Toner Scams

Campus departments should be advised of scam marketplace activity regarding toner products. Scam toner companies commonly target areas within universities, government agencies, or other large organizations. A common ploy is to randomly contact an employee who carries out procurement for their area via phone, attempt to persuade them that their company provides toner for their machine(s), and make a sales offer of toner. If the department proceeds with the purchase, usually the products are extraordinarily priced, or the company may place additional charges against their procurement card. Internal Business Systems Inc. and IDCSERVCO are two companies that have recently attempted toner scams against GW. If you have questions about your machines and toner purchases, please contact Katherine Steele at [email protected] or at 3-4274.
