Well, one thing I consider is why someone might use a fax when they could use a scanner. For some documents, you need to have a printed copy, like a lease or a property deed. So if I am a landlord, and I need my tenant to have a copy of their lease, I might scan in the lease, convert it to a pdf, and send them an email, then when they got it they would have to print it out if they wanted a hard copy (which is a good thing to have for legal documents). OR, I could just fax it to them, and it prints automatically. Granted, it’s protocol to use a fax cover sheet, which does increase the amount of paper used, but it’s not actually necessary to use one. In addition, the minute a document is digitized it has the potential to be Photoshopped (so someone could, say, forge a signature on it), and so keeping a document travelling via fax, rather than computer, hypothetically makes it a little more secure.
