Evercom-Correctional Billing Services Complaint - Profits from prisoners
Regardless of the crime, no intity should be allowed to profit from the families of prisoners. We are not the cause for their indiscretions, but we are made to pay and pay dearly. I've spent over 1000.00 in two months
to Evercom. After going to my local jails website, I find that they are set to make an additional 25,000.00 in commission from phone calls to inmates by switching phone providers.
And yes we could and do write letters. I wish people wouldn't assume everyone that's incarcerated has committed a crime against someone or society. The state of California turns hardworking, tax paying citizens into "criminals" on a daily basis. The industry cannot survive otherwise.
We spend over 25,000 annually to house a prisoner and only 11,000 to educate a child. Something is wrong with the system.
