Slanderous Fax circulating regarding PWC

It has come to our attention that an absolutely false, libelous and malicious fax is being distributed among the wire and cable industry stating that the FBI raided our Las Vegas facility last night, December 8, 2008. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE and was done by a competitor in an intentional effort to damage Priority Wire and its reputation. If you receive this fax, please forward it to us at 480-393-4350. Priority Wire & Cable will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who distributes this slanderous document. Since such false and malicious information can be distributed by and about anyone, it is our hope that we can all work together to eliminate this type of despicable conduct from happening to anyone else in the future.
