This time the victim was exploited and exploited by the company called JPay, a tablet dedicated to inmates. JPay has made the prisoner himself / herself / his / her family to purchase tablets, the inmates offer digital services such as purchasing e-mail, music, etc., remittance from family members to inmates.

JPay said that it is a private company contracted with a prison, rather than operating the service by the government's aid. It is said that inmates using tablets can open a JPay account and the inmates can purchase various digital services using the balance in the account.

A spokesman of Idaho Department of Correction announced that "hundreds of sentenced people vulnerable to the JPay tablet and intentionally increased the balance of the JPay account." I did not explain what the vulnerability of the tablet was like and why hundreds of inmates could be misused, but it is shared about how to increase the balance between multiple prisons I think that it was.

JPay has already recovered $ 65,000 (about 7.1 million yen) out of the illegally padded balance. In the period until the situation is settled, JPay seems to limit the use of digital services of inmates, and seems to be unable to purchase services such as music and games other than e-mail.

Spokesperson of the Idaho State Correction Bureau said "It is a deliberate misconduct caused by multiple inmates' behavior, detailed knowledge of JPay's system," and is a large-scale crime committed I have said that.
