Q. Do I have to be married to have safe fax?

R. Although married people fax quite often, there are many single people who fax

Z. Don’t panic. Many people prematurely fax when they haven’t faxed in a long

Z. I have a personal and a business fax. Can the transmission become mixed up?

Z. Being bi-faxual can be confusing, but as long as you use a cover with each
one, you won’t transmit anything you’re not supposed to.
