Digital Cordless Facsimiles and Phones with Functions for Helping Prevent Bank Transfer Swindling

Sharp released two models of digital cordless facsimiles, the UX-AF90CL and UX-AF90CW, and two models of digital cordless phones, the JD-AT80CL and JD-AT80CW, which have functions for helping prevent bank transfer swindling (in which callers trick people into depositing money into a bank account).
There are seven functions useful in preventing bank transfer swindling over the phone. These include functions that warn users about incoming calls before they answer. With one function, for incoming calls from numbers not registered in the main phone unit's database, the phone automatically switches to a voice message asking the caller to give his or her name. The user will also be notified of incoming calls from unregistered numbers with a flashing red LED lamp*1.
An automatic call recording function*2 records an entire phone conversation after giving a warning message that it is about to do so. These facsimiles and phones are also easy to use, thanks to features like a large LED screen and a button for increasing receiver volume so callers are easy to hear.
Sharp also released two models of digital cordless facsimiles, the UX-AF91CL and UX-AF91CW, which have the industry's first*3 function for filtering incoming calls by automatically discriminating calls and blocking ones that are suspicious.

Users must sign up for caller ID (fee-based service) to use this function.
When signing up for caller ID service, the user can choose to play the warning message with this function only for incoming calls from numbers not registered in the phone's database. Registered numbers refer to the following: numbers registered in the main phone unit (not the cordless handset), in the one-touch dial database (only on the JD-AT80), in the Peace-of-Mind Consultation database, and in the Peace-of-Mind database.
