I have a single page PDF document that I need to fax to Singapore. Unfortunately I don't have a fax machine and don't really want to sign up to services that require an account, either prepay or volume-based.

Is anyone aware of any online service that can send a single document to a fax machine? Before anyone asks, yes, they require fax! Please don't ask why... I have been beating my head against the wall about this idiotic requirement for a couple of years. This will be the last fax, which is basically a set of instructions that will end our account with that company.

Any suggestions please?

Thanks,
D.

I don't know of any services but we have a fax machine, if you email me your PDF I don't mind printing it and faxing it.

What version of windows do you have, because some have fax software built in. You just scan and send via a normal dial up modem. Windows 7 pro has a fax. The problem though with newer computers is that they don't have dial up modems, but if you have an old PC or laptop it may.

Most copy/print shops and some internet cafes let you send a fax also.

I also think post shops let you fax. But I am guessing it maybe pricey if it is an overseas number.

Thanks everyone. I have actually ended up signing up to 2talk.co.nz, since I figured it's handy to have a fax service in case some other idiotic service requires it in the future. It was incredibly easy to setup as a prepay type service.
