Evercom / Consumer rip offs

1 United States Review updated:

Evercom is not only a rip off but should be unconstitutional as well as they hinder the freedom of speech in our prisons and jails.They make it impossible for inmates to stay in touch with their families which statistics show that inmates do 90% better when they are in contact with their loved ones.I know from experience as for three weeks i was unable to contact anyone.So if an inmate has no money on their books they are screwed.As well even if the family setes up an account they are overcharged for phone time.Here is what they charge compared to a rechargeable MCI card:
20.00= 40 minutes of call time, they are aloowed a 15 minute call = 3 1/2 calls if your lucky as some are cut short and actual minutes arent calculated correctly.
40.00= 2 20.00 phone cards
50.00 = an extra 15 minutes lets compare this to MCI
20.00= 950 minutes
additionaly all collect calls are blocked forcing the recieving end to sign up with evercom, this is a monopoly and is illegal, the government should be charged against this too as they allow themselves to break Federal guidlines under monopoly laws in this country.

    I agree, my little brother lost his construction job and was paying $680.00 in child support but he fell behind three months and is now in jail for six months- he is not a bad person- just lost his job and has an upset ex who depends on that money. Now he is sharing a cell with ten other guys that are constantly coming and going. His only refuge is to work in the kitchen - write letters- and make expensive collect calls. This calling system is not right.
