Attempted Jail Break Involves Fake Fax

Monday, March 06, 2017 by The eFax Team

How far would you go for a friend?

Recently, 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 to do some good…like cutting down on paper use or saving some money for your company.
