Frustrating (but finally cleared up the problem)

I was finally able to determine that the problem I was having with getting phone funds added to an inmate’s account was actually caused by my bank’s VISA Fraud Prevention company who saw the site as one that fit their criteria as often a target for fraudulent use of stolen credit cards. It want an issue with the app., but because the person who responded to my contact for help advised me that they didn’t service the facility I was trying to deposit funds to, and which I was finally able to do with the bank overriding the VISA Fraud flagging and denial, I’m taking off one star in my rating. Obviously, you DO service the facility to which I am making my deposit. Thanks for all the “help” and not replying to my follow-up message. *****

I continually get a message that my transaction is denied when trying to add phone funds to an inmate’s account. I try multiple times every month, and eventually it decides to accept it. Unfortunately, by then I’ve already had VISA Fraud prevention questioning that there are numerous attempts. This is incredibly frustrating. I’ve tried to add funds by phone, but his facility is not among the limited options. SO frustrating, and I’ve written to ask for help numerous times. Not a lot of long term help there either. I really wish there was another option but I’m out of state, so can’t make deposits in person at kiosk.

Video visitation

My son-in-law was in a county jail that used this system for 7 months. In that entire time not one single video visit worked. But we were charged for every one of them. Now he is in a prison that uses citi Tele coin and we video visit all the time. It freezes up sometimes on his end but he always gets to see us and the children

Can’t add money for calls

I’m new to all this, but the county that claims they use this site, I can’t find them at all, nor can I even add money if I did find them… this is crazy, Tele coin was a lot better, easier before they was transported.
