Quite a lot of non junkmail companies may not beable to send faxes either. For instance, any phone call going out of our companies phone system does not pass on the caller id. It's just something that these lines do.
Note: that the Caller ID printed by the fax unit is not the line caller id. It is a separately "stored on the fax unit" id.
Contact your local phone service. They should be able to give you the code you inut through your phone touchpad to block callers with caller id blocking.(I think it used to be something like *70 in my area.)
That's only a partial solution, according to what he asked for.
I've had very good success with our two fax machines at work by calling the toll free number at the bottom and removing our numbers from their lists. We get only a couple faxes a month now. Other machines get a couple a day.
This does not make it right, by any means, in the U.S. it's illegal to send junk faxes. I have filled out complaints online with the FCC website on occasion. You won't get any help from the FCC by doing this, but the FCC will add your complaint to the list they use when they calculate the fines they will charge to the parasite company in their 'NAL'. They fined Fax.com at $11,000 per complaint, and at almost 500 complaints that came to about $5.4 million.
