Person phones your company, enquires as to who your service provider is for copiers and obtains machine models.

From there the buyer at your origination will be contacted by the scammer who will claim that the service provider cannot provide toners for the identified copiers as there is a stock shortage in the country, resulting in the service provider not being able to supply toners, while they can supply at a price while the service providers will reimburse your company for all toners bought from First Golden. This is of course never true as moneys paid will just disappear while no stock will arrive as well as the reimbursement will not take place as this is a scam.

Just a note no service provider will refer their clients to another supplier for supplies be that toner or not, they will simply buy out stock if it is available from another source
