Good evening, so I couldn’t sleep one night and found this site. I’ve went to the people not receiving mail. So I pick 4people to write to. It’s been 2 weeks now and I haven’t received any input back. Could I had done something wrong?

Probably not. Mail is very slow right now due to COVID. Emails (jpay) are a little faster, but still... and it also depends where you are at. International mail took 3-4 weeks even pre-COVID and this has still turned longer. Even before the pandemic I'd have said: "Giveit a month or a month and a half", to someone who's not in the US,now I'd say: Give it 10-12 weeks.

The site is very difficult for me to navigate. It has a ton of ads. Some where small about a quarter of the way down its says "main menu" in there it says "list an inmate" you should b able to get it from there. Good luck.

Idk if it's just my wifi, but the pages forever to load.

I'm new to this, my son has requested I research pe pals for him and I don't understand how this whole website works. Can someone assist me in how I go about getting pen pals for my son?

Good evening, I'm new to this site as well. I tried to locate a # to contact them to get some sort of assistance no luck so far. I would love for you to write my cousin Danny Phillips #0507391 I know he will write you back. I think that's all you need is his offender #. If you need anything else please let me know. Have a great evening :)

Was wondering if Phillip Mott #135070 was reviewed to post?  I haven't ever posted on things like this, so don't quite know the process.  He would love to have a pen pal or so, and was wondering if you could advise me?

I doubt it. I'm assuming it's just taking a while with postal mail because if covid virus

I've got no way to tell you this, as a member of the forums I'm in no way part of their internal stuff. Contact them directly via email to ask. I assume you submitted the profile via email, too? If so, just ask them about it.
