EXAMINER.COM -- Sep 8 -- The number of sites is growing as fast as the prisons themselves with sites like prisonpenpals.com, jailbabes.com, jaildudes.com, inmate.com, ladiesofthepen.com, Cellblockmail.com, and inmatesforyou.com. The sites make their money by charging inmates (roughly $40 to $75) to post their ads and print and forward any responses, or by charging penpals (usually less than $10) for inmate addresses. Susan Smith is one of the most popular prisoners on writeaprisoner.com where she has her pick of men - to the tune of over 1 million emails and letters - who are lining up online to be her beau. Apparently locking your children in a car, driving them into a lake and killing them isn't a deterrent for some men...go figure.
