Idaho State Law Library

I have an eFax account that I have very rarely used, but it can come in very handy as the fax is actually directed to an e-mail account. If one directs it to an e-mail account that is Internet accessible it can be that much more convenient. I received a fax Wednesday and Thursday from "The State of Idaho Supreme Court". It was in regards to a copy card. Interesting considering where it came from that there was no fax cover sheet with any kind of confidentiality notice such as:


The documents accompanying this telecopy transmission contain confidential information belonging to the sender, which is legally privileged. The information is intended only for the use of the individual or entity recipient named above. If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any disclosure, copying, distribution or the taking of any action in reliance on the contents of the telecopied information is strictly prohibited.

Re: Copy card

Our records indicate that you did not pay for your photocopying at the Law Library on October 14. It also appears that you left the building without turning in the copy card.

Please return to the library and settle your account.

Thank you.

I called the Law Library to let them know that they were sending this incorrectly. They stated that it looked as though someone was trying to pull one over on them and gave false information to get out of paying their copy fees. Hey, whoever you are, use someone else's fax number next time. Okay, better yet, don't give them a fax number next time.
