The call came in at 1:58a.m. and woke up myself and my husband. They left a message that if you press a number to accept free calls. To call that hour of the early morning and bothering senior citizens is terrible. Please check on this. Thank you

The company is Securustech.net They give a customer service number of 800-844-6591. Tried calling several times to get them to block my number, but the call always cuts off before the option to remove your # or to speak to someone.

I am getting calls 1-2 times a day from this number on my cell phone. It is the automatic voice from a jail wanting me to accept the call. I do NOT know anyone in this area, and can't even understand the name from the voice calling. I continue to let it ring and do not answer. It is getting annoying. I want these calls to stop.

Numerous calls from this number, it would be nice to know where they are coming from, even though they say what county it is, you can't understand that either, or it wasn't familiar, and what state is it from? It would be nice to have a number to call back and let the prison/jail to take you off the list instead of 1-866-847-1251, automated, can't talk to a human. Great customer service. I guess if it keeps happening I will contact the Missouri Attorney General's office to see what they can do.

Highly annoying, I bet I have received more than a half a dozen calls. I think it is blocked now, we will see.

I used to get calls from institutions in Illinois. I have since stopped them. I called Securus: Cons Call Home at 855-230-1840 and they said they only provide a cheaper way to phone and don't have info about who is calling. Plus I was told you have to have an account set up before anyone in an jail can call you. Which is true, because they want their money upfront and ready before you can talk. I still don't believe they don't know which number called me, all those things are tracked these days. I blocked them.

I've been receiving calls of this nature for the past week. No idea how they got my number, but it's beginning to really bother me. This is a new number compared to the one that had been calling me last week, but it's still an 866 and both appear to be this same correctional facility scam. Would love more information on who is doing this.

Caller name: Correctional Billing Services - Div of Securus Technologies

Caller type: Prison/Jail Collect Call

Any call from this number comes an inmate at a correctional facility. You should always answer the call to see if it is someone that you know.

This call is not a scam, it is a legitimate company. If you want to know more about them, call the number back or look them up on the internet using the info at the end of this comment.

I copied and pasted the majority of what is in this comment directly from the Securus website. I do not work for them. I just had the idea to go there and find out who they really are and post it here so that all of you can become more knowledgeable.

I personally do not like the prices that Securus Technologies charges for the inmate calls, but it is what it is and Securus Technologies is not the only Correctional Phone Service out there. There are plenty more. They not only provide the phone service, but they also provide the equipment to record all of the calls in case there is something that they or you say that can be used against them.

The correctional facility also gets a percentage of every dollar spent. If you go to www.securustech.net, click on the tab for Correctional Staff. There is advertising to get more business from more jails. Interesting.

A recording gives the inmate a chance to speak their name so that you can hear it and know who is calling you from jail.

The recording also tells you in the first sentence which facility that the inmate is calling from, but you have answer the call to hear it. If the call goes to voice mail, then the first part of the recording is cut off and most likely you will never hear or know which jail the call is coming from or the name of the person who is calling.

The majority of these calls are collect. If you do not want to accept the call, you do not have to and you will not be charged if you do not press 1 to accept the call.

Some of the calls from this number are not collect calls. Even if the inmate has money in their account and uses that money to make calls or purchase phone cards, the call is still routed through and recorded by the equipment that Securus Technologies, Inc. provides to the jail with their service. So you may be getting a 'free' call from an inmate in jail.

Some inmates incorrectly dial the phone number that they are trying to reach or do not remember the number of the person that they want to call. They do not have access to their belongings, including their cell phones, and probably do not remember everyone's phone number. So it is very possible that it is a wrong number. If you want to block it, follow the instructions at the end of this comment or call the number below. It is not very difficult. If you don't understand the instructions, call the number and someone will help you to do it.

Securus Technologies, Inc. provides the inmate telephone service to more than 2,200 correctional facilities in the USA and Canada.

Correctional Billing Services is a division of Securus that provides Customer Service to the called parties.

An inmate can contact family and friends by calling collect from inmate telephones in the jail. Family and friends must be willing to accept the charges.

Inmates cannot receive incoming telephone calls and employees are not permitted to deliver personal messages to inmates.

You may block phone calls from inmates by pressing '6' when you are called by an inmate.
We do not remove blocks on phones per inmate request. Only the person that is on the receiving end of the blocked phone number can remove it by calling Customer Service at Correctional Billing Services (CBS) at 1-800-844-6591.

If you are having trouble receiving calls from an inmate at any Jail/Prison/Detention Center Facility, and would like to request a BLOCK on your phone, or have a question about how to setup a DIRECT BILL or PREPAID COLLECT account, please contact Correctional Billing Services(CBS). CBS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can be contacted for:

Any billing issues for the end users.

Just want to let everybody know about my experience. I have been receiving collect calls from correction facility number every day for more than a week form number 18668471251.
I tried to block this number through my cell phone service, "do not call list" and even through calling directly to jail without any results. Eventually, my son found a number for correction facility service:
18008446591, it is take a while to go through the different options until you get to the right one:
to block your number from any inmates calling through this service.
Thanks god, calls have stopped after that.
Hope it will help somebody else who is desperate.

I received 2 calls late eve around 1140pm from this number. I missed both calls because I didn't have my cell phone with me. After doing google search, found possibility of call from jail. Did google+ location search of my partner who was visiting Tacoma, we live in CA... and sure enough it placed him in a police building. I had my niece in Kent call the jail then post bail for my partner. This seems to be a universal number from jail facilities according to other comments on this site.

Not a scam. Prison or jail call.
This is called supply & demand. The tele-comp sells an expensive service to people who have no other option but to pay Securest charges.
Ex: you are thirsty, bottle water cost is 0.10. You are force to pay $14.95 for a fraction of the bottled water. It's simple supply & demand. Kick the guy when he's down.
Most professional thieves play by the law. This is a legal comp.
