Voicemail forwarding


Explanation:
In phone terms, Band can refer to the voicemail "tape", see following examples:

http://www.stil.de/knigge-tipps/detail/artikel/die-schwierig... "Leider Pech gehabt. Ich bin persönlich nicht erreichbar. Bitte hinterlassen Sie mir eine Nachricht auf Band."

https://www.akademie.de/wissen/anrufbeantworter-ab-guten-ein... "Schließlich präsentieren Sie auch mit einem kurzen Monolog auf Band sich selbst und Ihr Angebot."

http://www.koschis-web.de/technisches/mailboxsprueche.html "Sprrechet nach dem Läuten des Peterrsdomes die gesegneten Worrte auf's Band."

Here's some examples of voicemail fraud: https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/voicemail-system-hackin... 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"
