For the last couple of weeks I've been getting automated calls from 357-6638 and 357-6637. The message says that an inmate is trying to reach me and do I want to accept this call.
The caller ID is Evercom Systems Inc. which seems to be owned by Securus Technologies Inc.
When I did a Google search on Evercom Alaska one of the links is to a State of Alaska web page: Divisions of Institutions Spring Street Correctional Center.
I checked and nobody I'm related to is in jail or any of my friends. At the bottom of the page is some information on how to block these calls. I'm not going to use it, I'm just going to ignore the calls.
It appearers to me that inmates are picking numbers from the phone book and then using the correctional phone system to run a Phishing scam.
