  • Wrong information; even so much as a transposed number in the prisoner’s ID can cause the correspondence to be rejected.
  • The sender is required to go to the post office in order to send letters, instead of having the convenience of online correspondence.
  • In order to send money, the sender must provide personal information to the Access Corrections site or mail a money order without certainty that the funds were made available for the inmate.
