Welcome to 1990

We got a spam fax at the office.  It was disguised to look like someone had pasted a newspaper article onto a piece of paper and then hand-written “Thought this was interesting! – A” on it.  It was selling cheap insurance or something.

Two questions:  1) Who falls for that kind of scam, and 2) who uses a fax machine any more?

We still have one because we need something to hold down the top of a spare desk, but I can’t remember the last time I got real fax message.

One bark on “Welcome to 1990

  1. We have a fax/copier/printer in one machine. Several times a month we need to send a fax. For incoming, we subscribe to a service which converts them to pdf files and emails them to us. We receive faxes (about half of which are “spam”) several times a week.
