Just got 3 calls from this number on my cell. Don't know anyone in Texas. I will not answer.
Many MDOC facilities use a clearing-house of sorts to route the calls. Friend is in Adrian-his calls come from this number. Previously he was in Muskegon & Kincheloe, both of those came through as TX #'s as well.
I just received a call from this number on my cell. I immediately hung up and Goggled the number. I do not know any one in the correction system -but thought that I should check on my kids just in case. Next I called the number from Google phone and was told that it was a women's prison. When I explained that I did not have any daughters and could not imagine who that would be, they advised me that they could block my number.
Same as others. Prisoner from Michigan corrections. How in thee f*** are they getting our numbers and why in thee f*** isn't MDOC doing something about it?
I have had my number blocked several times when this inmate was in another correctional facility. He keeps calling me. At this point I consider it harassment.
2nd call - Got an automated call. Collect call from "Sergio." I know a Sergio and he was sitting right next to me. Say's that if you feel you are being victimized to report it, maybe I will next time.
Same deal - MI Corrections call, allegedly, despite a TX area code. I don't know anyone incarcerated.
They called me 3times, on Sunday, from my secure, State phone, I called the number back, on a private phone, operator
said number not in service.
F*** the prisoners... damn losers are there for a reason... leave my phone alone and (again) fuxk em... killem and save some money...
I received a call tonight, Saturday, March 1st, 2014 at 11:19pm, i let the call go to VM and when I listened to the msg, it was from West Shoreline Prison, a guy named Bruce. I believe it was the prison in Muskegon. But the area code is making me scratch my head...do prisoners get cell phones? I mean, the only way one could call Muskegon area code in the Muskegon areas would have to have a cell number from TX...hmmmm....
Who own this number?
who own this number
I don't get that much money enough to pay bills, I don't need someone to take my money.
I receive a call saying they were calling from debit card in prison, they never gave there name.I waited for them to say who they were. there was a machine saying that if I thought it was a fault attempt to press a number 1 or 2 for 3 for some thing elves. By the time you lesson to the message, I had to call them back to see if it was some one I know.
I sent Tex to 972-980-0395. I don't know if this information will help
I have been receiving multiple calls a day, with VMs left every time from MI correctional facility, name of Ryan. This is almost guaranteed a scam, as the likelihood that so many have been receiving the same type of call and do not know who it is or know anyone in MI corrections is very slim. Most likely someone has set up a false messaging system trying to prompt individuals to 'Set up an account' and 'Enter your credit card information', under the guise of MI corrections (female 'operator' voice). DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION, AND ADD THEM TO THE 'REJECT' LIST (Android) IF YOU WANT THEM TO STOP. It is not very hard to set up a fake messaging system, and get a female pre-recorded voice to add prompts.
When I picked up operator voice said "free call from prisoner . . ." at which point I hung up and blocked from my cell phone.
I missed the call so don't know who it was from so I am not going to call it back because of others have told me that there is a scam out there where they are charging you for the call and also taking your information. So I looked it up and found your site and I am reporting it.
Although this may be true. I don't know anyone locked up in a Michigan correctional facility in Saginaw. This is a bit weird.
I've gotten a call from this number 3 times Friday evening January 17. It says it was from a correctional facility in Saginaw Facility. I went up North Skiing and thought it may have been a legitimate call from someone who was ticketed in Saginaw. But here a week later its Sunday evening January 26 10:30 pm and I get the call again. The voicemail sounds like the person says Carl or Scott "somebody"............
Another Prank Call Recvd
Got two calls from this number. Did NOT pick up the first time. 2nd time did not give name. Stated he wanted to speak to "Jazzlynn". found out it was PCS contracted calling servie for Michigan Dpet. of Corrections. WILL NEVER ANSWER ANY CALL LIKE THIS AGAIN IF I DONT KNOW THE NUMBER!!!!!!!1
getting at least 2 calls a day from this number but every time we answer the phone there is no one there. please stop the no one there phone calls...
I received a phone call from this number and when I said I didn't know anyone there, he said he wanted me to give him information to block the call the call, I said no. If these calls are coming from a prison how about the Warden's number so I can call there as many times as I receive a call, and ask why his inmates are allowed to harass people when they are obviously incarcerated for a reason.
I been getting call from this number for maybe 3 days, the name on my phone said "Charles" I have no clue who that is. It rings two time and they hang up. I have answered one time and its die air. How do you get them from calling you 10 times a day.
A prisoner by the name of Paul keeps calling my cell from 972-798-0395. I sent an email to MDOC. Tonight Paul was really pretty persistent and after refusing the call I got a text message firstname.lastname@example.org. I think this is a scam. I have made complaint online with Do Not Call as all my phones are registered and sent MDOC another email requesting the warden to call. Tomorrow I am calling the AG. They are criminals and if they're harassing people they haven't learned the lesson yet.
Pressin 6 duz not work fer sum reason on my phone to stop these damn calls that interrupt my work day continuously!!! Tells me 6 is not a valid response!!!!
My voicemail says this number is calling from St. Louis,mo. Correctional facility and has called me on n off alllllllll friggin day asking me to accept the charges and needs to stop before i make a road trip;)
9727980395 Said it was from a Women's prison and to accept a free call. It wa on my voicemail.
I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING THESE CALLS FOR THE LAST COUPLE DAYS. 972-798-0395
It is MDOC. My husband called me from that exact number last night and he is in prison... The collect calls company they use is out of texas... if you don't want them calling you just call MDOC and tell them you don't want to receive anymore calls. Or call your phone company. They will gladly put you on their block list whomever you decide to contact.
You can block your number from these kinds of calls two ways: a) press 6 when prompted, make up a 4-digit pin and key it in when prompted, or b) call the telephone vendor that MDOC uses at 1-855-466-2832 and tell them you want a block put on your phone so that you no longer recieve prisoner phone calls. They'll ask you for only basic information, then will contact your current phone company and have them block the prison's inmate calling number. I chose to do option b above and stopped receiving these unwanted calls within a day.
I have been called by this number seven times in the last few days. Last night I got called three times within twenty minutes and leaves a message every time. It's getting ridiculous. Is there anyway to call them and tell it's not the correct number?
