Default SC / NM / IN / MO/ FL / OK - Do not allow Pen Pal Adverts.

South Carolina - excludes Federal.
New Mexico - excludes Federal.
Missouri - excludes Federal.
Indiana - excludes Federal.
Oklahoma - excludes Federal.
Florida - excludes Federal.

No longer allow Pen Pal adverts.

As indicated above this does not include Federal Prisons.

Please do not post any adverts for those incarcerated in these states.

Should you post them, we will have to remove them.

Many thanks

Those who are in Federal facilities in these states can still post ads.

Just out of curiosity, why is Federal ok and the rest don't allow it? Seems terribly unfair!

It does but those particular states stopped it probably because they experienced a higher volume of scams than most.

Also, while feds allow pen pal advertising, they are stricter with visits as you must prove you knew the inmate prior to their incarceration.

Its just a matter of policy these states do not allow inmates to have penpal ads. However the FBOP do allow federal inmates to place penpal ads. Its not fair but unfortunately its the way it is and we have to respect it so that inmates in these states dont get into trouble.

Because they are completely different systems. Federal regulations are for every federal facility, regardless of the state they are located. State regulations are only for state facilities.
