Recently there have been several reports of toner scam phone calls. The calls come from 384-9000 which means that the caller ID has been blocked. The individual identifies himself as Mr. Davis with Insight Services and pressures the employee for a credit card number so he can process the order.
However, there are numerous companies that target the University trying to get departments to order toner from them. We have contract vendors for our copier and printer toner. Neither vendor will ever contact you asking you to place an order. If you do receive calls about ordering toner you should decline or refer them to Jana Weaver in the Purchasing Department.
The companies that call are typically very persistent and will try to make it sound like they are our contract vendors or you have placed an order with them previously. They will try any way they can to get you to order, including offering free samples that are not free. Please do not give your information to these companies. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Jana Weaver by email or at 205-348-3954.
