We are currently collecting information about the ways that family members of prisoners and detainees get cheated by the high cost of sending money to fund inmate accounts, and the ways that this money is given back upon release from custody (such as debit cards from private companies). There are pending federal actions where your stories could make a difference in these practices. Please fill out our survey to help us end prison profiteering.
The more stories we can collect the greater impact we can have.
If you or someone you know has been charged high fees to send money to a prisoner or to access money when released from custody we would like to know the following:
1) The name of the facility and state it is located in.
2) The name of the company processing the money or issuing the debit card.
3) How much money was taken from you? Were the fees disclosed? If so, how?
4) What documentation do you have?
5) When did it occur?
6) Did you object?
