Yes, the service is called "Letters from Inmates". It allows the inmate to use the InmateAid address to receive your mail without giving out your physical address. There is a section on your Account Dashboard where incoming inmate mail is placed for your review. This is a huge service for people not wanting to expose their physical address where a bad-intentioned inmate could potentially extort a loved one on the outside. For $1.59, it's inexpensive 'peace of mind'.Read more
YES, they would use the 'return address' on the mail piece we send on your behalf.

There are countless stories of inmates extorting loved ones... don't expose your personal information needlessly, the cost for us to handle your inmate mail is $1.49.Read more
The $200 per month is reasonable to cover things like telephone calls and commissary. The very troubling part is the 27% loan - which we would strongly suggest NOT doing.

It is possible that it is partially correct. But is sounds a little fishy. Paroled inmates are oftentimes provided transportation and we've never heard that the inmate had to pay for ankle monitoring, but it's possible that they now charge. We would encourage you to contact the facility and ask to speak with a counselor that is in charge of your inmate's re-entry. They will know 100% what is real and what is not.Read more
Call the police in the jursidiction where the house is located. Report everything you know about the alleged crime, pretty simple stuff.Read more
Scams happen to new inmates by predator inmates. Most of these scams are hard to tell unless you are forewarned. Many savvy people, even wealthy businessmen get fleeced inside prison simply trying to fit in. Predators are not easily spotted but they know how to spot you by finding out what your weaknesses are. Most every "new" inmate's weakness is thinking that their appeal will get them out early, or that there is something that cuts their sentence. The inmatesRead more
