Facts About Faxes

Sophos NakedSecurity blog reports a recent threat being received that masquarades as an “New Incoming Fax”. 

Many companies have moved to connecting fax machines to the network so that the sending and receiving of faxes is done through your computer via a fax gateway.  As a result you receive faxes in your email inbox.

The Excelsior Springs School District has not.  At this point, we still send and receive faxes the old fashioned way—on paper.

Therefore, any email claiming to be an incoming fax that arrives in your district email inbox is unsolicited email, not true, and should be deleted.  Also, add the sender to your Junk Sender list.
