QEDC and QMA warns BEWARE of “Toner Pirates” – Another great reason to shop local!

ATTENTION QMA MEMBER:

 “Toner Pirates” is a term used to describe fraudulent activity which  tricks companies into giving out information on office copiers, than they call back within  a few days letting on they are you local servicing dealer offering you a “great price” on toner.

 Please take a moment to read the important following message which has been provided by a fellow QMA member who recently was contacted by  “Toner Pirates”: 

We had a company that called one of our staff to obtain the model of our photo copier stating they were just updating the servicing records.  Later in the week they contacted our finance person with the information and stated they were working on behalf of the service contract to offer us a deal on toner for the copier as a large increase in the cost was looming.  He became suspicious that the call display had blocked the phone number and stated they would need to send a quote for approval by the plant manager.  He then informed me of his suspicions.  Within minutes I received a call from this company that the finance department had requested pricing for toner cartridges that would require my approval.  I contacted our photocopier service company who said that our toner cartridges were covered under the lease agreement but if we wanted to purchase a spare they were about $99.  I told them what had transpired with the other company and they advised us they were well aware of “Toner Pirates”.  

I have provided the quote and a letter (see below) from our service provider about these groups.  The price was 5 times higher than what it would cost me normally if I wanted to buy one.  Buyer beware.”

 

10 reasons to frequent local businesses

There is power in shopping at locally owned businesses.

When shopping at local businesses you are seen as an individual not a consumer statistic. Because they have a smaller consumer base, local businesses have the advantage of tailoring their sales strategies to the local customer and community rather than having to stick with nationwide marketing plans.

10 reasons to frequent local businesses

1. Money stays in our community
Significantly more money stays locally when you buy at locally owned businesses. Buying local helps grow other businesses and the local tax base. 

2. You foster community support
Locally owned businesses know you; and you know us. Studies have shown that local businesses donate to community causes at more than TWICE the rate of chain/multinational stores.

3. You create local jobs
Small businesses are the largest employers in our community. Supporting small business keeps people employed in our community directly and by using other local service providers.

4. You conserve your tax dollars
Local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure and make good use of public services. Also, spending locally instead of chain/multinational stores ensures that your dollars are reinvested where they belong right here in your own community.

5. Community investment
Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community who are more invested in the community’s future.

6. Experience better service
Local business has a vested interest in knowing how to serve you. Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products
they are selling and take more time to meet customer needs.

7. Create more choice
A marketplace with hundreds of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. Local businesses carry a wider array of unique products because we buy for our own individual market.

8. Help the environment 
Locally sourced materials and products have many environmental benefits. They produce less waste by eliminating unnecessary transportation and delivery, therefore reducing the amount of emissions and packaging being used. Less packaging means less waste and less demand on landfill sites.

9. Add character to our community
Local businesses contribute to the distinctive character of our community benefiting tourism and giving residents sound reason for not moving away.

10. Local prosperity
Entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses. The more interesting and unique we are as a community, the more we will attract new neighbours and visitors.
