Misuse of service
Inmate Scams – The most common inmate scam pertains to fabricating an incident or event in which they need money to remedy. Once they have made their situation known, they may ask you for financial assistance. As with any relationship, use your best judgment. If something seems suspicious, then make your decision to continue as a pen pal and/or to contribute to the financial request accordingly. While this is not generally a common occurrence, it does and will happen on the occasion.
Harassment – If you have initiated penal relationship with an inmate, then at a point choose to end the relationship and correspondence with the inmate and they choose to harass you by mail or by other means, it should be reported. Your first action should be to report the harassment to the Department of Corrections where the inmate is located. Once this has been done you should report it to Prison Inmate Penpal here.
Unsolicited Mail – While most Departments of Correction encourage correspondence with inmates they do not condone unsolicited mail (especially commercial or advertorial mailings) received as a result of the prisoners being listed on Prison Inmate Penpal. All correspondence should be on a personal level with the consent of both parties. Solicitation of prisoners is strictly prohibited by all State and Federal Correctional Facilities. This website is designed to connect prisoners with people on the outside where both parties seek friendship or the desire to pursue a relationship. Violators who elect to disregard the Terms and Policies of Prison Inmate Penpal, and the laws and regulations of the Department of Corrections will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This website connects inmates with personal assistant services.
Illegal Activity – If you or an inmate abuse the trust of our services , we will assist in any investigation if questioned. You will be banned from our service, and so will the inmate.
