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.
- A toner pirate will try to sound as official as possible, but if you question them or ask for more details, they can become impatient, pushy and rude.
- They will often tell you that you need to lock in your pricing today and try to pressure you into acting fast or committing to buy from them on the spot.
- Generally, they will try to sell toners for $400, $500 and sometimes even $600 each!
