How can you tell if your talking to a toner pirate?
- Typically they will make their first call to your office to ask for the model numbers of your copy and print equipment. Later, they will call back, appearing to have a knowledge of your company's office equipment and supply needs. In many cases, they will pretend to be with the company you bought your office equipment from, making them seem trustworthy.

- Generally, they will try to sell toners for $400, $500 and sometimes even $600 each!
