I received two calls from 866-478-8892 on my cell phone while I was attending school. When I got out I listened to the following voice message, "For quality customer service, if you would like to discontinue this automated recording, press 1. If you want to accept Collect calls from Lock County Jail throug GlobalTelLinks* advanced pay automated payment service, press 2. Or at your convenience you can call our advanced pay payment service at 800-483-8314
at a later time. To repeat this message, press 3. Thank you."
The message was left at 2:08 January 24, 2008. The calls were made at 9:30 AM and 11:53 AM today January 24, 2008.
I initially paniced, because I have a lot of friends and more than a few who would call me if they got into real trouble. I didn't think you could call cell phones from jail, but I didn't know. I didn't recognize the county so I waited until I got home before I did anything about the message. I spent a good deal of time looking for the county and then I finally entered the number and came up with this. It's good to know I'm no where near the only person this has been happening to.
DO NOT ACCEPT THE COLLECT CALL CHARGES!
