Did you receive a fax from 1-866-432-7612, subject "Little to No Co-Pay for Doc Visit", claiming "This insured plan includes: doctor visits, hospital visits, surgeries, intensive care, dental, vision, maternity, chiropractic care, hearing, urgent care..."? And it says "to be removed from our database, please call 1-866-395-8075? It is a junk fax scam. While the names, numbers and exact wording may change, if it looks like the example below, it is just a sleazy attempt to disguise an advertisement as an authorized company communication.

The scammer either bought your fax number off of a list of verified fax machine phone numbers, or made his own list, using an autodialer to randomly dial phone numbers until it hears a fax receiving tone on the other end.

The scams work the same way as in email or telephone; usually it is "hot stock tip" scam (see this page about stock and security scams) or it is a basic advanced fee fraud (AFF, also called "Nigerian 419 scams, see this page) or it is simply a really sleazy way to advertise their product or service.   Would you want to buy anything from a business that uses junk faxes to advertise?

Autofax dialers can produce, store, and dial telephone numbers using a random or sequential number generator. Often, they dial every number in a sequence, hoping that some are valid and they will connect to a fax machine. 

See this page for what you can do to stop the junk faxes, including suing them!
