    Default Don?t mention you found them online?

    Hello! Complete newbie here. I was reading through threads to get advice on writing to inmates & I think I read somewhere that you should not mention in your letter that you found the inmate through an online profile & that if you do your letter will not make it through the screening system to get delivered to the inmate. Of course now I can?t find the thread... So my question - is this true? If so, I may end up having to write an introductory letter all over again. ☹️

    Some states allow inmates to have a penpal profile, other states don't and I'm not sure which states allow what. Maybe it is best not to mention until they bring it up themselves

    As far as I read, Florida, Missouri and Oklahoma don't allow penpals for prisoners.

    I read through the rules for the states my (hopefully) penpals are in on prisonpro & it didn’t mention any restrictions. So I guess as long as that is accurate I’m ok.
