Current Fraud/Con Scheme On Campus: A subject telephones a department and wants to know the make and model number of the department's copier or printer. They sometimes ask for the serial number. The subject will also ask for the name of the director of the department or purchasing officer. They sometimes say their sending free samples or are checking what equipment the department has for promotional reasons. The subject will then send matching toner cartridges, that were never ordered, and a billing invoice to the department. A person in the department, receiving the cartridges, sees that the make, model, serial number and department administrator's name is correct on the invoice and thinks the department ordered it.
