SCAM ALERT – Printers of all Types Beware!

Posted Friday, March 14, 2014 by Jules VanSant.

Here is an email letter I received today. Not unlike others that I have received over the past few years for fliers, they do respond, asking for an attractive quote and willing to use a card for payment, but asking for you to prepay the shipping… but the card never works, even if you get pre approval.

Guess where that money goes… along with any really money to you. That’s right, to the scammer. And any inventory you purchased to cover the project… ouch.

Make sure your sales people, estimating department and CSRs know to be suspicious and not enamored with the “great opportunity.” It’s only going to end bad, on so many levels.- See more at: http://ppiconnects.org/blog/#sthash.xmcyoc7a.dpuf
