don't dial anything when you get a call from a stranger it's common sense. THis is a criminal organization being run from inside the prison. Wehn ui dial numbers they tell you to dial your credit ard gets charged it's a pretty stupid scam... do not fall for it

My boyfriend just went to jail, I had no idea .... I kept getting calls from the number 7139810098 , I answered once and didn't pay much attention since it sounded like a recorded voice ... Later I found out my boyfriend was in prison.... Could he have called me from that number? I really need an answer ... How can I contact him? I need him....

Whoever made this call, the SOB did so at 1:20AM PDT!! To say I'm PISSED is an understatement! This caller woke me from a sound sleep! Who the h**l has to call someone in the middle of the night?!
If it's from a Texas prison, as most of the people say this 713 call is from, I let my answering machine take it, and they hung up without leaving a message. I want that goddamn number removed from the chance to call again. I wonder how they got my number. Please help to wipe out this caller.

Everyone who thinks this is a scam is a f*****g moron. If you go to jail for ANY reason, the phone calls you make from inside are collect calls. If you call a cell phone, it will require the person to use a credit card to pay for minutes used. There is nothing else to it!

Caller name: Officer Rogers

Caller type: Prison/Jail Collect Call

Gotta call from 713-981-0098 which is the same number I receive calls from my old man on. It's from county jail, via global tellink. This time it wasn't my old man, it was someone claiming to be Officer Rogers, and he instructed me to call 721-562-7357, to discuss an inmate. So what did I do? I googled the number and this is what I came up with. ta da! As for "don't tarnish my convict son's name" ! Wake the heck up... he already did that himself. They're all innocent! And guess what.... this wouldn't be happening to us if we didn't have someone we cared about in jail. So stop being such a drama queen!

Said they would call back in 10 min and can't give out info. Then gave us a number specifically saying to start with *72 and say id number 98...something. I called and the number is not in service. They said to ask for Sgt. Nancy Vega.

They called my grandmother in law and now I'm freaking out. How would I really know if he is hurt? Is this really a scam? Its cruel if it is and I loath them right now but I'd rather know it to be a scam than for it to be true.

Was told that my home phone number, which is unlisted, was given an emergency number by an inmate in the L.A. County Jail. Thinking my brother had done something dumb, again, I accepted the charges without listening to the cost of the call. The person proceeds to give me a bookie number, sargent's name and phone number. He told me that he'd call back. He even sincerely expressed his hope that things were okay. He did not ask for money.

Nervous, I called. Luckily, only Taco Bell answered! I went online to check the phone number. That's when I learned that I had been scammed.

We have been getting calls from this number and just deleted the messages each time. For weeks, the messages were without the phone number where the call was coming from except to say, that it is from an inmate and "to accept this collect call press 3". Of late, when I played the message, the number was read by Verizon so I came to a point to google where it is from. Thanks to the blogs, I also called Verizon to block all operator assisted calls and from any collect calls (because they cannot just block a number but a "specifier").

I just got this call twice today. A message was left on my voice mail. Couldn't tell what the guy was saying, he was mumbling something about a family emergency... I tried calling the number back to see what was going in but it was busy. So I googled the number and wow.... this goes way back from 2011... glad to see people informing each other.

Caller name: +1 (713) 568-6973

Caller type: Prison/Jail Collect Call

I received 4 calls on my cell phone from (713) 568-6973. I didn't answer but they left 4 voicemails, stating I have "a 30 second free chat" and to listen to payment options if I want more time. The recording didn't state what the call was for... I then answered a call from (800) 483-8314, and the recording stated I missed a call from a corrections inmate (didn't state the facility) due to billing restrictions, and to go to www.connectnet.com to set up a prepaid account. I don't know why I received these calls or how my cell number was obtained... Due to the complaints and possible scams I found relating to this, I blocked both numbers from calling my cell.

I got calls from (713) 568-6973. In my caller ID houston, Tx appeared. At first I didn't answer because I don't have family in Houston but then the 2nd time I did because my boyfriend is in jail. My boyfriend isnt in jail in Houston, he is in Granbury, Tx but I believe that's who Hood County Jail associates with for its collect calls. So my call wasnt no scam. But they do charge a lot for 15 min.

Having 15 years of experience in Law Enforcement, including administration of a detention center (and control of phone systems) and as a correctional officer at a local prison, I recognize a scam when I see it.
Unfortunately, not everyone will. I hope people getting these calls will continue to make complaints; the more people we can make aware of these low-lifes, the fewer people that will get ripped off by them!!

In order to recieve calls on mobile devices from someone in jail you need to set up an accout rgrough global tel link. If you dont know anyone in jail them maybe they are tge ones with the wrong number, p.s, it is very common to get an old cell number that use to belong to someobe else
