i'm sure they do but i doubt if they have to anymore. i was looking for a booker for my music, you know, after being a musician for so long, i know the bullshit comes, so my senses are attuned to it. anyway, i discussed some booking with a guy who said he fulfilled all of my qualifications, I didn't like having to drive 50 miles to meet him but i figured, these are the things i'm gonna have to do to find a good person. Anyway, in the initial convo, he mentioned fax, i thought that was suspicious because no one who does business today relies or even mentions fax anymore. next day, i called him to check in for our meeting, he asks what kind of car, then says "how big is your dick?" I said "WAT?!!" then i hung up, this freak tried calling several more times but i just ignored him.

the next person was just as bad, fortunately she sent me her full name in her email, i googled her and found stories of her ripping off people, the funniest one was her selling a lame horse to someone. there is a reason companies have human resources and check the shit out of people, most people are fucking useless.

so I have been sending a fax the last few weeks for some records. After sending the fax 2 or 3 times. After several phone calls, during which I was told the records would be sent... just now that same lady said "Oh no no no, you have to request that from...." some other place.

The last fax I sent was a couple of years ago - documentation for a submission to my flexible medical account. But they have an app for that, now. Just take a photo of the bill and submit it that way.

Even on my latest home refi, everything was done online. The last time I did that (in 2010, I think), it was fax city.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I think business's use them more often. I'm guessing safer than emailing important documents.

Yes, my office still sends and receives faxes.

The local Fire Marshal still insists on sending out project approvals via fax.

I last sent a fax in 2009 when I was temping in between jobs. I sent in my time sheet so I could get paid. Even back then they were transitioning to email. Most documents these days have electronic signatures, so I don't even know whether faxes are even necessary these days.
