All over the world, there are many people who have been locked up in prisons for crimes that they committed. When a country has rules and regulations, and they are broken, that makes a person a culprit when they break those rules. Everyone has a family, history, friends, and enemies although they might be in a prison. There is no difference between a convict and a normal person because they have the same desires only that their freedom has been limited. There are certain things that you are required to know when you are writing to someone who is in prison. Because there are things that you need to keep in mind when communicating; this text will try to highlight some of those things.
When you are communicating with an inmate, you will need to note that they do not have access to computers nor internet and so you will need to use alternative means. Therefore, all the letters need to be sent using the normal mail system. The friends and families of the inmates usually provide their mail listings so that letters can always reach the receiver when they have been sent. 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. You should be careful not to use your savings when you want to send money to an inmate. Some of the inmates might be after manipulating you, and that is why you should not use your savings.
Verification of information from your convict pen pal might not be truthful, and that is the reason you need to be careful. You should not send a lot of money to an inmate because they had said that they love you. Another piece of information that you should not reveal to your inmate pen pal is your social security number. The information that you send out for the first letter needs to communicate what you want instead of stating things which are not important or necessary. If you want your inmate pen pal to like you, then you need to give a brief description of who you are and what you are looking forward to.
Because you have not met with your prisoner pen pal, you need to include your weight, age, height, eye color, hair color, glasses and race as part of your description. 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.
