Voicemail forwarding

In phone terms, Band can refer to the voicemail "tape", see following examples: "Leider Pech gehabt. Ich bin persönlich nicht erreichbar. Bitte hinterlassen Sie mir eine Nachricht auf Band." "Schließlich präsentieren Sie auch mit einem kurzen Monolog auf Band sich selbst und Ihr Angebot." "Sprrechet nach dem Läuten des Peterrsdomes die gesegneten Worrte auf's Band."

Here's some examples of voicemail fraud: none of them involve forwarding the messages ("tape") themselves, so I'd be inclined to check further with the client, or keep slightly ambiguous with "voicemail forwarding"
