Fraud Alert: Toner Cartridge Solicitors

In recent weeks, there has been an increase in phony toner sales calls to campus departments. These telemarketers will misrepresent themselves as printer/copier sales staff or as authorized representatives. They will ask the department for the type of toner used for their office printer and get you to agree to buy toner from them at inflated prices.

Contacts and Purchasing Services would like to remind campus departments to not order products or services from unsolicited telemarketers. Our official vendor for printer supplies is Staples Advantage who does not contact departments unless requested to do so by you. In addition, consumable supplies such as toner for office copiers are provided to you through SJSU’s Copier Program.
