All over the world, there are many people who have been locked up in prisons for crimes that they committed. Some of the common mistakes they did include stealing, murder, and other mistakes. All the convicts in prisons have a past, and they are related to different people despite them being isolated from their families. Although there are millions of prisoners in the world; they still have the same necessities and demands as the normal human being. There are certain things that you are required to know when you are writing to someone who is in prison. The information provided here will come in to be handy when you are writing to a convict.
As part of the communication process, you will not use email because prisoners are not allowed to use computers nor do they have access to them. Therefore, all the letters need to be sent using the normal mail system. As a friend of an inmate who has not provided their listing, their letters will not be received because they are not recognized. Because prisoners do not have any source of income, they might rely on their friends and families to provide them with the money for buying the things that they require. When an inmate asks money from you, then they might be asking the money for buying candy, underwear, pencils, and stamps. However, you should not be forced to send money and end up using all your savings. The reason why you should not use your savings is because they might not be truthful with the information that they provide.
Therefore, before you send any money to them you need to think about it. You should not send a lot of money to an inmate because they had said that they love you. When it comes to personal information such as social security number; you should not be open and reveal such to your prisoner pen pal. If you are sending out a letter to your inmate pen pal, you need to keep the letter short and convey the information that you need. While sending the letter, make sure that you communicate who you are and what your likes are.
As you provide a brief description of yourself, be sure to provide information such as your height, age, weight, eye color, hair color, glasses, race and many more. Apart from deciding to describe yourself, you can make the process easier for your inmate by sending your letter together with a photograph of yourself.
