Same thing here. They called saying they were from Canon corporate and gave the same story as D. Gave us the same phone number. We've had several fake calls from various numbers over the past several weeks so I got his number to do some research first. I'm glad I found this information to confirm my suspicions.
Trying to find out who owns this phone number.
we are a service company and our customer called us to check why Sherman Wilson was calling representing himself as their account rep, used a Skype # 661-748-0240 to call them on...same toner story, price lock, etc.
Same story as D, and gave me the bogus number of 800-235-3900. We also have a contract with our supplier and pay nothing for our toner.
Said he was "Sherman Wilson" from "One Source for Canon". Gave me the same story as he gave "D" below and the same fake phone number. Total scam.
Someone identifying himself as "Sherman Wilson" from "Xerox Universal" just called me and tried to tell me the price of a box of black toner for our printer (he got the model number right - must have stolen a contact list from our printer supplier) was going up and that he was supposed to notify us 30 days in advance, which he didn't, so he is authorized to lock in the lower price for 24 months, etc.
Total scam - we get supplies from a particular place through which we have a service contract for our printer. When I asked how I could reach him if I needed to, he gave me this number. When called, this number currently rings through to a diet food supply company.
Same here. Tried to find out model and Xerox copier.
tried to find out owner name and model # of our copier
