Attempted Jail Break Involves Fake Fax

Monday, March 06, 2017 by eFax Team

How far would you go for a friend?

Last month, a man in Nebraska proved that helping out a friend can sometimes include doing things you never thought you’d do - like sending a fax!

According to authorities, Justin Colbert sent a fake fax that claimed the Lancaster County Court had received a bond payment for his friend, a currently jailed inmate.

This modern-day jailbreak-by-fax fairytale didn’t exactly end happily ever after, though. Authorities noticed the fake fax had a different number than the real Lancaster County Court and charged Colbert with abuse of public records.  

So what’s the valuable lesson here?

First of all, you never know when a simple faxing option might come in handy! Secondly, and more importantly, use online faxing the eFax to do some good…like cutting down on paper use or saving some money for your company.
