    Latest phone scam involves copier toner cartridges
    KIRKSVILLE
    - The Kirksville Police Department is warning residents of a phone scam
    involving an individual claiming to be an agent of a local retail
    office supplier.According to a KPD press release submitted Wednesday
    afternoon, a local non-profit organization contacted officers Tuesday
    after an unknown individual requested the name and model number of the
    group’s photocopy machine.Another unknown male who identified himself
    as an agent of a local office supplier followed up on the initial phone
    call a few days later. The caller informed the organization the prices
    had been raised to the $300-400 price range for the photocopier’s
    replacement toner cartridges.The employee subsequently researched the
    cost of the replacement cartridges, and found they normally cost a
    significant amount less than the quoted price.When the salesman called
    back, the employee confronted him with the research information, and
    the caller immediately hung up the phone.The police department requests
    if anyone has been contacted in reference to this scheme to contact
    them immediately.A name and phone number of the salesman would also be
    helpful.”Be cautious of all unsolicited sales calls,” said Cpl. James
    Holzmeier. “Remember to verify all information that’s given to you
    before you make any purchases.”
