Corcoran is pretty slow to deliver things and slower over the holidays so they will probably work their way around to it in time.
Call if you want and let them know when they arrived and ask when he can expect them.
Shu delivery is slower also.

Does anyone know :
-- When sending a money order, is there a limit to the amount of $ it can be?
-- Is there a limit to the amount of money an inmate can have on his books?

I know that Jpay has a limit of 500 dollars per month, but apparently that is just a Jpay rule. Any help appreciated........

I think the charges depend on the distance, day of the week, and time of day. Evening calls on Sunday night between Corcoran and Simi Valley, CA (30 miles north of Los Angeles) are $2.10 for 15 minutes.

I suggest that you contact Amazon and see if the books were delivered, and if they were later returned. A package I had sent to Corcoran in early December was delivered to the prison, and returned to the vendor without explanation.

I have not had luck calling the mailroom, but you can try. They only say that they are busy and do the best they can to deliver everything. You might try sending one more book and see if it is delivered. Make sure you have the correct address and your LO has not been moved. Cor is not good at delivering mail when the men are moved, or when a package is mis-addressed or mis-delivered.

I would call the main number and ask for records first. Once you confirm his address you can ask to be transferred to the mailroom. I think the main telephone number has a directory for all of the extensions.

FOUND THIS ONLINE:
INFORMATION ON WESTERN UNION
In order to send money through Western Union, you will need the "Code City" and the "Account Number". Here's what you need to know:
"Code City": CDCRINMATEDEPOSIT"
Account Number": Your inmate's CDCR number
