What do you do when you need to receive a fax but don’t have a fax machine? The first thing people might consider is one of the businesses where you have to pay to receive faxes like Kinkos or even your local library (ours is 25c a page). But did you know that your bank and insurance companies will accept the fax for you free of charge? They might require that you be present when the fax is sent to you, but it is worth inquiring about!
My mother in law is working with a lawyer out of state and she has had to send and receive faxes from him quite a few times. Our insurance agent (State Farm), has gladly accepted the fax and will call when it is received. They even have a notary on site that has made this process extremely easy!
