Do inmates know who sends them money through JPay?
It has to be sent to their fund or account. My own experience is that no, inmates may not know who sent them money or even if money has been sent. They get a quarterly balance sheet with deposits and withdrawals but as far as being notified when and by who, no they don’t usually get notified.
