STOP JUNK FAXES: Fed up with receiving, paying for and wasting your valuable time with those aggravating spam faxes day after day?! Tired of losing valuable business because your customers can't get through because your fax is tied up with the latest offer for free exotic vacation, pump & dump stock, your "Nigerian uncle" who willed you $6 million, offer to make a million dollars by licking envelopes, or your huge contest win or UK lottery win?! You've called their opt-out number only to find that it either does not connect or the opt-out lasted for about a week, and now you are getting even more junk faxes - now that they know that you read their junk faxes and emotionally respond to them. Caller ID screening doesn't work because few fax blasters reveal their phone numbers, and restricting faxers to a list is time-consuming and almost always misses important faxers. Sure, unsolicited junk faxes are illegal. Suing fax blasters is not the problem - collecting from them is the problem. Some are overseas; others regularly go out of business and then pop up as new fax businesses the next day. They have been sued countless times and that hasn't stopped them. Most law enforcement is so bogged down with violent crimes and terrorism that few prosecute fax criminals.
           The cost of one unsolicited fax is about $1 in toner or ribbon, paper, wear and tear on your fax machine, and annoyances and disruptions to you and your family and/or employees. At a buck each, a mere 3 junk faxes per day cost YOU about $1,000/yr of YOUR hard-earned money! With money tighter than ever, who can afford that! If you are a business, agency or institution, junk faxes can even be more costly to you because it leaves you wide open to competitors, pranksters and disgruntled customers and former employees to sabotage you with junk faxes. Junk faxes is also an easy, low-tech type of denial of service attack ripe for exploitation by criminals, terrorists and rogue states. In some cases, the cost to you of even one junk fax can be very high - if not devastating to you - for example, if the junk fax tie-up of your fax machine loses you an important client or a critical medical, legal, or financial document.
           Until we fixed this seriously irritating and costly problem, we got about 4 unsolicited faxes daily! We had tried about a dozen methods to stop the junk faxes that didn't work until we found a method that works great. We also had tried replacing the fax machine with an answering machine for periods up to a week at a loss of fax business to us, only to find that within a day of reconnecting the fax machine, the junk faxes resumed full force. We also had tried CNG filters (CNG notch filters or CNG band stop filters) to filter out the fax CNG tone (the 3-second beeps transmit fax machines send receive fax machines to alert it to prepare for a fax transfer) in conjunction with a fax controller / fax switch (also often referred to as a phone controller / phone switch) from reaching the fax controller / fax switch and causing it to automatically transfer to fax function. While the notch filters worked well to filter out the CNG beeps, however, they also sometimes interfered with the fax transfer itself if the sender or us manually punched in the fax code to allow the fax. We also tested about a dozen fax controllers / fax switches and found that even those that permit you to program in a fax transfer code would still automatically transfer to fax machine upon receipt of the CNG beeps (their fax transfer codes work only with silent fax machines which don't transmit CNG beeps, however, fax blasters typically use CNG beeps to force your fax controller / fax switch to automatically transfer). Finally, we found one high quality fax controller / fax switch you could program to not respond to CNG beeps, but instead to always automatically transfer calls to answering machine (where you would have instructions on the fax transfer code needed to activate transfer to your fax machine (or other procedure you require) so that your fax machine can only be manually activated by the sender or you by pressing in your fax transfer code) - although its user manual clearly states that it automatically switches to fax machine if CNG beeps arrive (do they intentionally mislead so they don't upset the fax manufacturers and office supply and electronic retailers who sell a lot of fax machines to replace spam worn-out fax machines, and fax toner, fax ribbons and paper - heavily profiting from fax spam?)! We often see this fine fax controller / fax switch sell Online for about $20 + shipping.
           This book provides you full details on the fax controller / fax switch we found that can be programmed for manual fax switching regardless of CNG tone input to defeat junk faxes, and how we programmed it to to ignore the CNG tone and always transfer to the answering machine (works with all of the makes and models of fax machines and answering machines we tested it with) to require manual fax transfer code entry to activate fax transfers. Also included is our experiences in trying to discover and perfect this method (including our simple, passive fax filter design), much information on the laws that apply to junk faxes, information on fax counterfeiting, and exposes the shocking methods others use to turn the tables on fax spammers. No hardware included.

FAX MACHINE SECURITY: Describes in detail all known methods phone phreaks use to hack Faxes (Fax attacks) and countermeasures (much more complex than just connecting a third facsimile to the phone line, which doesn't work).

Words=29.0K. $29. ISBN: 0-934274-60-6

SOCIAL ENGINEERING: "Social Engineering" is the science of persuasion and manipulating people to do exactly what you want them to do - even if it against their best judgment or interests - with minimal loss, costs and risks to yourself. While the term was originated by hackers and phreakers (adept social engineers) to describe socializing techniques they developed for obtaining vital information from sysops, security personnel, and phone operators, it is as old as time itself, and is the tool of every adept politician, sales person, preacher and con man. Even chimps know how to "Social Engineer," while many humans have lost this vital skill over the millennia. Words=12.6K. $29. ISBN: 0-934274-73-8

82S23 PROM EMULATOR PLANS: Many popular electronic devices (e.g. cellphones, scanners, other radios, etc) use the 82S23 and 82S123 PROM. Fully-labeled computer-drawn plans for an interface between any PROM programmer that can program 2758 PROMs and an 8223 socket. Words=0.2K. $19.

ROBOFONE "WARGAMES" AUTODIALER: RWA was a powerful and versatile "Wargames" DOS autodialer program that allowed you to dial any phone # (up to 10K) or mix of local and LD phone #s, in any order, over any length of time, whether busy or answered (your choice) and log the results (including phone call duration times) to the monitor, printer and-or disk file. Ideal as a phone call logger. And a real life saver as an auto redialer for emergency calls, and ideal for chronically busy and hold numbers.
