Secure Fax Machine

      Disclosed is a secure fax machine consisting of a fax machine
fitted with an apparatus which destroys the original upon
confirmation of the transmission of the fax.

      The apparatus which destroys the original may consist of a
paper shredder, a laser device, or a chemical or ink dispenser which
renders the original unreadable.  Apparatus may also be added to
catch the remains of the original (shredded paper or otherwise) to
add further security.  This solves the problem of the accessibility
of original information left at a fax machine.
