I have received several recording calls from this number claiming it is from a Maryland Correctional Facility and asking me to accept, or hang up to decline. I know no one in a correctional facility and cannot understand the caller's "recorded name" which is inserted.
How do you stop these? They come either very early in the am or very late in the pm.

This is NOT a scam, contrary to what people have been saying here. I just recieved a call from this number and it didn't connect right away so I hung up and looked up the number. A few minutes later it rang again and connected this time, and it was one of my friends who had just gotten a DUI and was calling me from the jail he was at. It wasn't a collect call.

I get a call from this number multiple times a day. They day an inmate from manatee county correctional facility is trying to call me. I went through all the waiting one time, apparently my number is similar to a bail bonds company. I have had this number for a very long time and only recently been receiving these calls, really weird.

Listen people, one thing to do and is obvious when you first answer, is listen to the prompts. Just shut up and listen. It tells you that if you DO NOT WANT CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER, press certain number. They are prepaid calls for people in a detention facility. If you don't have anybody that knows you that is in jail, good for you, but listen for the name, recognize the voice, if you don't know them, just press the corresponding number.
Quit being a nagging crowd, this company does that as a convenience for the inmates and their families. God blessed you if anyone you know is not into those circumstances.
NEXT TIME YOU GET A CALL FROM THIS NUMBER, REMEMBER, JUST LISTEN TO THE INSTRUCTIONS.

I answered a call from this number (because I was anticipating another call from an unknown number). It was a recording saying to continue receiving calls from the correctional facility I would need to set up a prepaid account. I don't know anyone currently in a facility and I have never received calls from someone in a correctional facility. According to the notes on another site, this is coming from Franklin County OH. I used to live there but moved away from the area 4 YEARS ago (but still have an OH cell phone number). So this has SCAM written ALL over it.

I keep receiving calls from this number on my business line. I hear several different people speaking in a foreign language. It is difficult to make out what they want , but then I hear in English something about a correctional facility. When I call the number, they only give options for depositing money into an account. There is no way to speak to a live person directly. If I see their number on my caller ID and don't answer, they leave a message. This is a criminal at work here, and they need to be stopped.

I missed the call from this number, received another from a 800 number about an hour later, answered, and a recording said my phone wasn't set up to accept collect calls from an inmate and I would have to call back and deposit money. Scam is all I could think. I looked up possible relatives who may have called me and none of them are in jail. Beware.

I just received a call, & it went to voicemail. I have 2 cellphones, one with Verizon, & one with T-Mobile. The T-Mobile phone gets the bulk of these crazy calls for me, & this is the first time I got a call from some prison with a Houston, Texas number. I first of all don't know anyone from Texas, & the caller left a broken up message, where I only heard: "caller (blank) inmate (blank) for 8 seconds. Hopefully I don't get many of these calls.

It's from the jail. I do know someone in jail, its not a telemarketer or a scam. Someone obviously has a wrong number if you don't know anyone in jail. You can answer and press a # for your number to not accept calls from them.

Starting at 1230 am until 1250 am, this number called at least 12 times. Once about every minute. Ridiculous! I live in Ohio and my mom lives in Texas so I got worried it might be her so I answered and the call was from some prison (I couldn't make out the name of it) from some guy named Jesse. What place would really let people in prison call someone this late at night? I'm thinking it had to be some kind of spam.

BEWARE - this is a scam intended to get you to provide your credit card number. The call recording states it is a collect call from an inmate, this one said the name was "Dad". If you accept you get another message with a different company name saying you need to have a prepaid account and asks for your credit card. I hung up after this, especially since my father isn't in prison. I will be calling my cell service to have the number blocked. Has called back three times already in the same day.

I got a call at 2:06 a.m. I was sleeping, answered, did not look at number, a message this is from a correctional facility: my son is on a trip, thought something happened, no one answered when I asked "who is this". Call ended. They called back at 2:07 again, still sleepy and wondering what is going on. Ran number on reverse yellow pages, said it was land line. They called at 2:10 again, I did not answer as I had looked it up.

It was an automated call that said it was a collect call and someone from henrico co (va) jail is trying to contact me. When it said the jail's name it was recorded in a different voice so I assume it is a scam. My boyfriend just recently went to henrico co jail and called me yesterday from a number at the jail so I am almost positive if I were to get a call, it wouldn't be from a number in Texas asking for bank numbers and such, it'd be from the same one as yesterday. Don't give into it!! If you know someone who is in jail call the jail and ask how legitimate the number is.

I received a collect call request from a prisoner at a jail I could not even tell you the name of?? Most likely because I was rudely awakened by the call at 12:38 AM. I opted to just hang up!! I've received numerous messages from 1 (800) 483-8314 stating that if I wish to continue to receive calls, I need to provide credit card info.
I obviously DO NOT wish to receive these calls, please quit calling!!!

Now this jail if it is the correct name is in California and yet the call was coming from Texas! This is n't the first time I have had one of these calls - and it has been reported to the do not call center with which I have my number registered.
