I believe this is a coming from the credit card companies, not the individual providers. Access Corrections, JPay and TelMate all charge the cash advance fee for putting money on their books, and credit cards treat those transactions as cash advances. I spoke with my credit card company and they said that since those services convert the money to cash for the inmates, it was a cash advance and therefore was subject to cash advance fees.
