Someone called me tonight twice and said a family member was hurt and in the medical facility. I called Verizon and told them and they said that if any charges come through they will credit me.

received 3 or 4 attempted collect calls from the Global Network
from someone attempting to call from Marshall County Jail in Lewisburg,Tennessee.
I actually called the jail at 931-359-0556 and asked to speak
with Mr. Sam Bragg, who is supposed to be in charge, to let him
know someone is doing this.
I just hang up when they try it again.

I work in a public defenders office, and I have received collect calls from jails before, but when I got a call from this number saying it was a collect call from a jail in Gwinnit county (GA), it didn't sound right. Plus, we are way across the country on the other coast. The weird part is, the call came through on a line we never give up; our office is in a secured building. To get in, you have to press a button on the outside of the building to dial up to us. We always keep one line free for that, and that's the line this call came in on.

I was freaked out to get a call from this number on my cell phone which I do not give out. They left a voicemail that said basically the same info as above.  I don't know anyone in prison nor would I call anyone in prison.

I received a call from this number tonight, and I do have someone in San Bernardino County Jail at the West Valley Detention Center. But when he calls it has a caller id of W.V.D.C. and this number did not have caller id, it said "Not Provider".  

I did not give my credit card number but did hit to see what my balance was. I hope I do not get a weird charge on my phone bill but I will have to wait and see.

i read this on another wesite about this number be aware!!!!!!!
THIS IS A SCAM TO CHARGE YOUR CELL PHONE - B E W A R E.
I got a call from this number on 9/7/2006 at 7:44 PM EST. The message was identical to the real message from the Riverside Jail in Colonial Heights, VA, with exception that the name of the inmate is not indicated. The interesting thing is that I DO know an inmate where I accepted calls on my home phone in recent weeks. The inmate had NEVER called my cell phone, because you cannot reach a cell phone from the Jail for security reasons. The interesting thing is that the inmate was released from this jail prior to this call and did not make this call and did not have my cell phone number. No one in that jail has my cell phone number. Also, the Caller ID would from my home phone would NEVER show a return number; only out-of-area. This call came to my cell phone. I suspect this scam is getting phone numbers from the resume boards, such as DICE and Monster, where I have heard of several other scams, such as fraudulent checks being sent to people. The scammers are using such services where your phone numbers are readily available, such as your cell phone.

I just received a second call from 866-478-8892.  The first I was unable to answer at approx. 0900 12/24/07 (this a.m.).  Then, at 18:50hrs, I answered to this same number calling and a computerized voice stated that I was to receive a collect call from a "correctional facility", and that the call was sponsored by Global Tel Link.  I don't know anybody in a DCF. It said that I could press "1" to refuse the call, which I did.  A little googling of their number resulted in many stories of people getting billed $25.00 for simply getting this call.  
   It's never a good thing to have friends or family incarcerated, especially at this time of year. Once again, some fuckwads have found a vulnerable section of the population. If you can do anything to these a**holes with the info I've given you, please tell me about it when you do. It would make my Christmas that much warmer to think someone could cause these shitheads a little pain, whether it be financial, or my favorite, personal and physical.  If you need help, give me a call.  It's part of my personalized anger management program. You'd be doing a good thing by helping a guy work through his therapy.  Like a mitzvah. Merry Christmas.

I received a call from this number twice today.  They are calling my cell phone.  I phoned my service provider and unfortunately the only solution they were able to offer was to change my number for a charge of $15.00.  This really ticks me off since it is my privacy that is being invaded by these scam artists.  My cell  phone number holds a special significance to me and I will NOT have it changed so apparently my only recourse is to ignore the creeps until hopefully they give up and target someone else.

Received 3 calls..on 2/22...at the :05 minute time.  from Montgomery County Jail.  It is a scam.  the recording begins, "An inmate from the Montgomery County Jail is attempting to reach you.  this service is provided by Global Tel Link."  then I hung up.  I did learn that Global Tel Link provides pre-paid services for a variety of correctional facilities.  in Harris County, Texas there are many cell blocks with 40 per block...using the phone.  the best defense is to hang up...then alert your local authorities and media to spread the word that the scam may be in your area

I received two calls, one on 4/3 around 6:30 pm and 4/4 around 9:00 am  Asked me to press 1 or 2 to set up account because someone was calling me from a correctional facility.  I was worried it may be someone in trouble only to find out it's a scam.  Glad I checked number before giving my credit card info. I think it's shameful what people will do to run a scam. I hope someone in charge will put a stop to this.

I received a call from this number at 8:28 am on 4/16/2008.  I was out of service at the time the call came in, so I did not get a chance to answer it.  Just an update that the number is still alive and kicking.  A few months back, my roommate asked me if I knew a similar sounding number, probably the same one.  He said that he received a call on his cell phone from a jail, would he accept the charges.  He hung up.

Last night I received a call from a separate number that is also associated with Global Tel Link. This call from the 866 number actually gave me a recording saying that "an inmate using Global Tel Link is attempting to make a collect call to your number." Apparently, ComCast assures me that they cannot get into my phone lines, but I'm getting a little skeeved that I've had two calls like this in less than 24 hours.

One call yesterday 5/31/08 (No Number), and one today 6/1/08.  My son is currently deployed so I am accepting all calls.  I don't know anyone in jail, so I hung up immediately.  AT&T assured me I wasn't billed for the calls.

I asked the gods by doing a Google search, and found this site.  Thanks for being here.

I had a relative who was being held at the Airport Courthouse in LA.  While I was waiting for him to appear in court.  He called me from the cell in the courthouse to discuss his case.  I had accepted the call and put $25.00 credit applied to my credit card. Global Network was to set this up.  My relative was released that day.  Now all of a sudden I received a call from this 866-478-8892 number.  

I immediately called my relative and he was at his home. Bothers me I would receive this call.... something is up!
