    I have received an email supposedly from Jay pay. It wants me to erase and reenter my charge card information. this sounds suspiciously like a phishing scam to me. Please let me know if this is a necessary step or a phishing scam. if you send me an email address I will forward it to your spam control desk. HNL

    Hi, 2 things, 1) Will Corcoran SATF get video visitation? I live in Oregon and can’t afford to travel there. Video visitation is the perfect solution!!
    And 2) I have used Jpay for several months now and never had any problems!! You all provide a great service! But these last 3-4 weeks my inmate hasn’t been getting my emails. I am getting his. I have resent, re written and even tried screen shoting and sending a pic of my emails and still no luck. He does get some but not all. And I always include a pre paid stamp. I have told him to submit a ticket but still no luck. Can you help? Thanks

    I have the JPay app downloaded and I forgot my password, problem when I hit forgot password, I never receive the email from JPay on how to reset it? I’ve tried calling and get no one to answer, I’ve emailed out get no response I really don’t want to open another account because we have stamps on the one account that we can’t reset the password for? There should be a easier way like set up a security deposit question before you can change your password….any help besides the call to speak to someone when no one answers the phone….

    My son is in a Virginia CU. 2 times a year they are allowed to order food from an outside vendor. He had a friend who has no one to send him money. So I sent money to my son and his friend so they could order this much anticipated treat. Well, in VA you are not allowed to send money to 2 inmates. Surprise. Neither got their money and now my account is suspended for 6 months. So why can I add inmates to my account and then this happens when you use 2 names??

    My boyfriend is at Telfair State Prison. He has been unable to receive emails on his tablet for months now, he can send them but can’t see what’s coming in unless he uses the Kiosk. He has tried syncing the tablet to the kiosk and it only works for that moment and goes back to not syncing or receiving emails. What can be done about this?

    I swear to every question Jpay says the same thing “contact customer support” do you have it downloaded on a word document and just copy and paste the answer?

    for the last two hours I have attempted to add stamps and the money says its being pulled from my account however its not updating my stamp balance and also it keeps saying failed however my account shows the money was taken is there an ongoing issue today?

    I am pretty sure the response will be contact customer support but worth a try smh.

    I sent out money and emails through JPay to a loved one in Indiana. They are not expecting anything from me. And I do not believe that they have received anything from JPay at all. My concern is that they will not know they have money and an email waiting for them. Are they notified if something is sent via JPay?
