    My son is complaining that his JPay pad is not working right, if he takes it off the charger it immediately loses all its powder. He has to keep it plugged up. I just bought that pad a little over a year ago what could be going on and what can he do.

    JPay email is a joke!! I paid for 10 stamps and wrote 2 letters to my cousin and he has not received my letters!! I’m being taken for my money. He wrote me twice asking why I haven’t written him. He has tried committing suicide because he thinks no one cares about him. Give him my emails!!! I called and said that if I got a confirmation number, then he got my email. FALSE!!! I am going to make phone calls and comments until I hear word that he’s read my letters. HORRIBLE SERVICE for paying customers!! It is THEFT!!!

    Your message is really nice to have, it makes it easier to communicate with our loved ones, image had the chance to experience it from the inside unfortunately. I now have a loved one who is currently incarcerated and I can’t message her because of my have no way to purchase estamps, so know that whoever may have a loved one who is gone and are able to see send messages but really helps

    I emailed my brother on the 15th of this month. I know the process can take up to 48 hrs but I still have not heard back from my brother. Could this be due to a lock down? It’s very worrisome.

    What good are contests and discounts if the dumb kiosks do not work ??? In Louisiana, Angola Death Row, not one of the 4 kiosks works flawlessly. The guys have sent trouble tickets in quantities to Jpay but nothing is being built. It’s a shame !!!
