In today’s internet and social media-controlled world, information is king. Until recently, pulling back the curtain on government documents was as easy as filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the FBI – by email.
However, that option is no longer available. Filers must now send requests by snail mail – or fax!
So, if you’re looking to request documents from the public record, and you don’t have access to a fax machine, use eFax – an online faxing service that is as simple as email, but more compliant with the new FBI standards. It’s also much faster than snail mail!
