I received a call from Darren Lawrence today.  He asked to speak to the owner by name, I told him he wasn't in and took a message.  Darren called back within 30 minutes, asked if the owner was here, I told him he wasn't.  Then he said "that's strange, I just received a voicemail from Tony" I responded by telling him it's possible he called from his cell phone and left a voicemail.  He then requested the owners cell phone number, saying he'd left a voicemail but didn't leave his cell phone number.  I told him I'd put him on hold and check it out.  As I expected, Tony didn't leave any message and was completely unfamiliar with this company.  I let Darren know he was mistaken, he didn't seem to like that.  That brought me here.  If you looking for people's money for investments, lieing certainly won't garner trust.  It goes without saying that I've thrown his number away.

Had a rude person named Darren Lawrence call from this company. He asked to speak to the owner, and when I tried to get information like why he was calling, he was rude and abrupt and said "just see if he is available and transer me through". Told him that the manager wasn't available and I asked to take a message, wouldn't say what it was about. When I told him I won't give a message if he can't tell me what it was about, he said do whatever you want and pretty much hung up on me.

Upon doing this, absolutely refused to provide details of his project so I could pass them on to another person or ensure that the VP received the information.  Ended up saying he doesn't deal with third parties and would move to another company.If this is a legitimate business, he needs to wake up to the fact that most VPs have gate keepers who are authorized to take notes and information and who will pass it on. If this is not, or he is soliciting something, best of luck with that attitude!

Here's advice on dealing with this shady company: http://budhibbs.com/debtcollectorpages/capital_management_services.htm  (That link also contains their mailing address)I suggest mailing them a letter telling them that they've repeatedly contacted you about a debt that's not yours and that they are to consider your letter as legal notice that they are to cease all communication with you. I'd also inform them that if they fail to heed your notice, you'll promptly pursue sanctions against them in federal court.  This is important: take your letter to the post office and mail it via certified mail with a return receipt request. (I think that costs about $5 or so.)  If these crooks contact you more than once after receiving your certified letter, then you have standing to sue them in federal court for damages.For more information on protecting yourself against outlaw debt collectors and, if need be, suing them, check out these websites:http://www.budhibbs.comhttp://www.naca.net/debt-collection-abuse/http://www.fairdebtlawyers.com/http://www.myfairdebt.com/http://www.theadvocateslaw.com/http://www.consumercounselgroup.com/http://www.budhibbs.com/First.htmhttp://www.creditlawnetwork.com/http://www.westcoastlitigation.com/http://www.collectionstopper.com/

This is not a scam ~ it is a call from an inmate, being directed to you from an outside company, probaby Correctional Billing Services. If you listen closely, you can hear the person state their name when you answer, before you accept the call. If you know no one in jail (or think you'd never know anyone that would end up there), then it is probably an inmate trying to call someone and they accidently transposed a number or is simply dialing a number that was previously owned by someone else. If you get the call and don't want to accept it, simply ignore it, it's as easy as that.

If you don't know the person or name on the recording.....don't accpet the call. Geesh all of the back and forth is so uncalled for. You wanted to know who the number belonged to and now you do.

So you have NEVER got a wrong number before... No one EVER has called your number by accident, because it still happends to me ALL THE TIME and its not scams, people simply have the WRONG NUMBER when they call you. Check out Correctionial Billing Service... Its a legit thing... how to do think people in jail call out? Is it possible that MAYBE someone they knew had your number before you got it? Jesus You are truly pathetic for thinking this is most cetianly a scam... You are rediculous and i hope you end up in jail for what ever reason, right or wrong, and need to call out... and I HOPE you told everyone that this is a scam so when you cant get ahold of anyone you will get your just deserts. You are pathetic!

Here's the deal...It's a legit service being used properly by those detained for whatever reason and abused by others hence all the confusion.  Its an '866' toll free number similar to 1800 numbers owned a company that sells its 'phone services' to jails/prisons nationwide.  People incarcerated for whatever reason that can generally only make collect 'outgoing' calls to inform others of their situation, make arrangements for bail, etc. If the facility a person is detained in subscribes to the 'service' and a detainee makes an 'outgoing' call, honestly or otherwise, people called receive the recorded message mentioned.  Prices are astronomical, taking advantage of those locked up.  Generally if its a legit purpose, the honest caller will call back "when they can" or reach out to someone else.  This post doesn't tell you what to do when you receive the call, just what's going on around it...Use common sense and best judgement when deciding.

Did it ever occur to you, that maybe... just maybe in some crazy scheme to turn a profit, phone companies re-use phone numbers??  Do you think it's possible your number may not be a virgin?  Your phone number has probably had many different owners.  Especially with all the pre-paid "throw away" phones sold now that are so popular with criminals and drug dealers, you're a fool to think otherwise.I've been in jail many times and I have friends in jail right now.... many jails are using this type of for-profit company to handle inmate calls these days.  These companies are better equipped than many small county jails to handle the monitoring, staffing, recording and storing of these calls (which, by the way people, these conversations can be used against you and the inmate!! don't say nothing! they keep recordings of every call made for years, all jails and prisons do).  This company services jails and prisons all over the country, not from one particular county or city.  It is legit.  It could be argued they scam a guy out of $9.99 for a 50 cent call, but that is capitalism for you at it's best; the demand is high, the jails are full and they can charge as much as they want because families will pay it.

Yes, exactly. I was getting called by this number repeatedly. Sometimes ten times in an evening. . I listened very carefully and heard the name "Robyn".

I knew it was a mistake because I had JUST GOTTEN THE NEW CELL NUMBER AND HAD NOT GIVEN IT TO ANYONE YET. So, don't pick it up.

It's not a scam.  At least it's not a scam in the sen that you've described.  It's actually a call originating from an inmate who is trying to reach you by calling collect from a Texas state jail.  I received a call from this number yesterday, and sure enough it was someone who I knew who was recently arrested and was being kept in the Brazoria County Jail.  The scam is the amount of money you will be charged should you choose to accept the call.

It is not a scam, it is a call placed by an inmate in a correctional institute. If you go to your state's department of corrections site they should have a web page citing what call company they use. Yes, you will be charged if you accept the call. Yes you can go figure out which company your state (or the state the inmate is calling from) is using and ask them to block your phone number. It is your right to have your phone number blocked and the company will willingly do it. Mississippi's MDOC website says that they use Global Tel inc. which consists of 3 different companies working in different states to allow people in: Jail, prison, or a prison work system to call their loved ones. You can set up an account for about 25-50 dollars so that your loved one or friend can call you through that system, but they have to be processed and you need to know what facility they are in. If they are in jail (for DUI, driving w/o a license, under-aged drunkenness ext.) you'll have to wait for them to call you back as (at least in MS) you won't be able to figure out which jail they are in.My boyfriend is in jail waiting for his court hearing, everyone makes mistakes, and many of you have broken the law (you just haven't gotten caught or got off w/o time). To some this seems like a scam, but for those who know and love people who are in prison, being able to talk with them is a blessing. I'd  rather hearing my loved ones voice than using the money to go to a movie

When my husband called me from jail last year and I accepted the call it said there would be a charge of $9.99 to accept, for a maximum of 15 minutes. After the call I then received a text message asking if I wanted to subscribe to a $9.99 monthly service to be able to receive future calls, otherwise I would no longer be able to receive future calls to my cell number. Since I knew my husband was getting out the next day I text back "no", after which he could no longer call my cell, but if it was a case where someone you knew was going to be there for awhile it would be worth signing up for the service as opposed to paying $9.99 for each individual call even if your provider DOES allow more than one call without having to sign up for the service... I don't know how long it takes before you can accept a call from the jail again- a month? 6 months? A year?-- but yesterday my husband turned himself in for missing his court date last week, and I noticed that while i was waiting to bail him out he called me, so even tho I didn't answer I know that obviously my phone can receive calls from the jail again. It just seems like if you don't accept to pay for the monthly the first time it shouldn't just block your number for some unknown period of time after that, it should offer you the chance to sign up for the service the next time someone calls, cause who knows what could happen where that person gets arrested again, or someone else does, and you can't even receive their call because you declined to sign up for the monthly service the first time :-(.... This WAS over a year ago when this happened, so maybe they have changed things-- and he was able to call me yesterday so obviously after some period of time you can accept calls again, and different providers will have their own policies of course, but for the most part if someone calls you from the jail and you expect to hear from them again anytime soon after that, you would probably want to sign up for the monthly service.

I am sorry you had a bad experience and feel this is a scam. I to recieved these same calls for over a week so I investigated online and found out it is not a scam. My son is incarcerated and he was the one calling. I contacted "Correctional Billing Services" and prepaid for what is a basically a phone card. My son can only call my number unless I list another one on my account. Of course since it is my dime he will only be contacting me! He simply picks up the phone and dials my number and we are connected. No operators, going to his facility to purchase phone cards, or mailing money orders. In essence this is a wonderful service for people with loved ones incarcerated. Please be mindful and remember that not everyone in jail is a bad person. Some are even innocent. Alot of people make mistakes as well. I love my son and he made a bad choice and is serving his time. He is a good boy who just turned 21 and has no priors. He was gainfully employed, owned a home & car, went to college, paid taxes, voted, had no kids,etc. He simply chose the wrong friends who were not interested in achieving anything he has in his 21years and wound up in the wrong place at the wrong time. This service helps people like my family stay united. You see, my son is not the only one doing time.......his family is also serving time until his release.

Hey dude. I used to work in a jail, and these folks are right.  It's not a scam, just someone just had the wrong number.  Personally, I wouldn't pay a dime to talk to someone in jail, but that is just me.  Anyway, before you get all angry at the folks on the forum, you should know that inmates don't typically have use of computers and phone books, so I am sure someone just dialed a wrong number when they got your mom.

You are absolutely right! People speak when they don't know better... but it's ok everyone has to learn.  There are two different type of people that will use this number... 1. Good people that made a mistake and are now paying for that mistake, they do not know the tricks of the trade on how to utilize the process on how to contact a loved one once they are in jail. They have been given this number to call because the person they are trying to contact will not accept collect calls. Once you set up your phone to accept calls from a correctional facility you will not have to use this service. 2. For the people that are getting burned by someone that is in jail....Maybe these people KNOW the trick of the trade and are calling either random numbers or the old number to someone they once knew. Like it was said before, if you don't know them... don't accept the call. It's that SIMPLE... be smart and learn something before you comment. It makes you as smart as you look :) To btk... My prayers go out to you.. keep up the faith and GOD will control this situation... He always does.... AMEN

You need to know that people who see the inside of a jail are not only inmates! N E way, I have friends and family that have been incarcerated and the only phones available are set up through an outside billing source. Actually, their first phone call is FREE but, alot of people don't know this since they are too distraught to think at the moment. All you have to do is listen for the name of the caller, don't accept the call, then check your local jail or go online and use inmate locator service for any state you think this individual is in. People, get educated on stuff before you post misleading or ignorant information! As a matter of fact, nobody's opinion of what I have just said will bother me; especially if it's negative. I speak from experience and by the way, did I mention, I got a call today. My child, poor gal, is in trouble once again. Pray for us. :)

This is NOT a scam. This number is from an inmate trying to call you from jail or prison. My boyfriend, who had never had any legal issues or done any jail time prior to this, called me from this number because he was taken to jail for driving without insurance and the car was towed, which is Texas law. He was calling me to let me know what was going on because he never came back from work and I was getting really worried. I was extremely shocked to receive a call from an inmate, because no one I know gets into trouble like that, but apparently it happens because the inmate turned out to be my boyfriend. I would advise you to answer the call, because it could be a friend or a loved one trying to let you know what is going on and that they are in trouble. Yes they do charge $9.99 to accept the call, which the recording tells you UP FRONT and gives YOU the option to either accept the call or hang up, just like a collect call.

This "is" a scam! And an old one at that. Although "you" have a friend who is an inmate, there are others like me who don't. The phone companies have warned about this scam for many years. I learned about this scam over 20 years ago when someone called my home and gave my brother's name. He actually sounded like my brother and gave his name. It wasn't him because he walked through the door. By that time I had already accepted the call and the person disconnected. Later, I had a lot of charges on my phone that I had to have the phone company remove. This is a trick used by the inmate. They use the opportunity to commit crimes or call their friends and family and you get charged.Read this LA County news article: The scheme involves inmates placing phone calls from inside prison and then convincing whoever picks up the phone to dial a number with a special call forwarding prefix. That prefix will then forward all incoming calls made to the victim’s phone to the scammer’s phone including collect calls made by inmates who want to avoid the charges.Deputy Robert Bacey says the scams helps circumvent the jail house phone system’s automatic greeting.“When an inmate in the Los Angeles County system calls you, there is a pre-recorded message that says, ‘An inmate from the LA County Sheriff’s department is trying to contact you via a collect call, are you willing to accept those charges?’”, says Bacey.Officials say anyone who has been a victim of the scheme should contact their service provider, or opt-out of the call forwarding by dialing another prefix.(©2010 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc.

You are correct, Correctional Billing.     Someone calling from county jail or state prison.    Usually the inmate figures out how to get a one time to that number free call for about 45 seconds asking the person to set up an account with correctional billing so they can talk for about 15 minutes at a charge usually around $2.70  ro $3.00.    I understand the fear of a scam but if they will think for a minutes who might have gotten arrested after a few days most people figure it out.   The inmate of the county or the jail has to have money to purchase stamps to write so someone was reaching out to ask to tell a family member or get help.I have had an account with correctional billing and you pay an amount of your choosing and then when they have made the number of calls to use of the money they have to wait until you put some more money on.  It is sorta like a prepaid phone.I hope this clarfies.   The 9.99 amount must be in a state where the jail or prison is getting a big kickback.   I wished I did not know this information but I do due to family members so I would say just beaware that it may be a call from a relative needing you.  It is confusing because you are expecting it to be like a local area code and a familiar number from your local area but it is a 1-866 number.  You can google Correctionalbillingservices.com and contact them regarding the phone call you received they should be able to tell you what facility called your number.
