Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill
Our business was contacted via phone by Central Supplies, sales rep, Jeff. He has asked about the printer we use at our reception desk. Letting us know we still had warranty left on it. He then proceeded to say he was sorry that our ink was sent out late, but we would be recieving it shortly, letting him know we don’t order ink through this company. He proceeded to hang up.A week late we recieved an invoce for $460.31 for ink we had never ordered or received. Now, their accountant "Susan" is claiming we are past due.

A man called re: my ink cartridges. Apologizing that my black toner never made it (konica sends free cartridges as part of our contract) so I thought maybe over the busy Christmas season someone has called in an order for more black and we just hadn’t noticed that it had not arrived.
I thanked the man for letter me know and go to ahead and send it. A few days later another man called from "konica" and informed me that my cartridge was about to be sent and I said, "you know what while I have you on the phone you might as well send me all the colours, can never have enough of this stuff".
The black cartridge arrived along with an invoice for $464.42!!!! I thought I was talking to a konica rep the whole time!
I called konica and they told me that they would never call to receive orders from customers. I gave them the information on the company that is impersonating them.
A woman did call me back from the 1 800 number they leave on the invoice and claimed that she will be deleting the invoice and that a courier will come and pick up the toner she has sent. That is where I have left off as of now…
