Default Depositing money

I have just attempted to deposit money for my best friend and have encountered a problem. Because I have not visited I cannot deposit money. I assumed that because I have a vin number (thanks to my boyfriend) that I would be able to. Is there any way to deposit or send money without visiting? Or will he have to wait until I can actually get there?

Do you use internet banking? if you do, get his account details, ( just write him and ask for it ) it should be his prison number, the account number, and the town etc, where your friend is. You can put the money directly into his prison account that way.
Im in NZ, but thats how I give my man money. Much easier and a hell of a lot quicker.

I hope this helps you.

What we do sometimes is get the details of someone on his visit list. Then put that persons name and address on the back of the money order and mail it in. never had a problem.

Agree for sure. And If your partner needs extra money and a friend is happy for them to use their account - not recommended but useful - we do the same thing, just with the other guys details.
