I received 2 calls late eve around 1140pm from this number. I missed both calls because I didn't have my cell phone with me. After doing google search, found possibility of call from jail. Did google+ location search of my partner who was visiting Tacoma, we live in CA... and sure enough it placed him in a police building. I had my niece in Kent call the jail then post bail for my partner. This seems to be a universal number from jail facilities according to other comments on this site.

p.s. if you have Verizon you can block the number for free..login online and search for "block calls".. you have 10 numbers you can block for 90 days for free.. after 90 days the number drops off the list.. just re-add it. Hopefully they have stopped calling.. if not block them again..it is a free service through Verizon. I too am concerned about how they got my cell #..

I got several calls from a correctional facility on another number out of Boston.. a collect call with the same name.."it's Mike". From this 866-847-1251 number it is a recorded message then someone says "don't hang up, it's Mike".. Don't press any of the buttons the message says..just hang up because there used to be a scam where - if you press a certain number they then get an outside line from jail using your phone and they can call anywhere in the world!

It's a company that serves prisons called Securis Technologies that's behind it - don't know if they are legit or not. Do NOT answer the calls - call them on 866 847 1251 and follow the prompts to block all calls and also file a complaint with the FCC and your state Attorney General's office.

This is another way the corrupt law enforcement makes money
Its a collect call from someone in jail. The price is 35.00 per min and on a timer as to how long you can talk..the sheriff's office gets a kickback
.they should be in jail themselves
There is no justice

This is a legitimate service. Inmates form jails all over the country use this service to make collect calls to loved ones. If you are getting calls, and don;t know anyone in jail, it's because the inmates thinks they are calling the correct number, (they are trying to remember numbers without them written down anywhere) You can block the calls, by following the directions in the message, if you listen. You must double confirm the calls in order to be charged.

On this date, at this time (8:05), the caller claimed to be at the Weakley County Jail. Earllier that morning at 9:39 caller claimed be at a "penatentiary" (spelling??). I could never understand his name, but could tell it was a man. The rest of the message was a recording telling me how much it would cost, for how long, etc. After the first couple of times I got the calls, probably a month earlier, I'd just hang up. On February 26, I called our county jail to report the call. The lady I spoke to said it couldn't be any one there and said she'd tell her supervisor. I've never heard any more from them. . .

Why is a jail calling my cell phone ???
Texas
 Jan 31st, 2013
I answered the first time my cell phone rang, and it was an automated message from a prison. The message identified the prisoner, but it did not identify me. I believe it asked if I would accept a charge. I hung up. They called three more times, and I didn't answer. I called the number back and confirmed that they are am inmate collect call service. I requested that they block my number, and they confirmed that they had. The rep I talked to would not confirm that they dial random numbers, but I think that's what's going on. I'm not sure how it works, but it sure sounds like a way to charge calls to innocent people.

I hung up, but it made me wonder, how would they know my name?

This is not a scam. It is a call from a prison inmate. Some prisons use a calling billing service that prison inmates can use. If you do not know anyone in prison, then it was most likely the inmate dialed your number by mistake. Don't accept the charges if you don't want to billed.

This is a scam trying to bill your phone. It is NOT from someone you know in jail it is a way to make you pay 10 bucks to them via your cell phone bill. It will claim any local jail based on your location to make it seem more realistic. SCAM!
