Recently the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) installed kiosks in the housing units at the Chippewa Correctional Facility (URF) -- where Efren is currently housed -- that allow prisoners to send and receive electronic messages ("JPay messages"). To send Efren JPay messages you need to visit www.JPay.com and create an account. Once you create an account you must purchase electronic stamps to send Efren messages. The electronic stamps cost 20 cents each. You do not have to pay to receive messages from Efren via JPay. He pays to send his own messages. After you have created a JPay account and purchased electronic stamps the next step is to locate Efren on the JPay.com web site to write him. You do this by entering his prison number in the "Inmate Locator" box on the site. Efren's prison number is "203116". To initiate correspondence with Efren using JPay.com you must first send him a JPay message. The MDOC does not allow Michigan prisoners to send messages to members of the public until the prisoner first receives a message from the person who is trying to communicate with the prisoner. Once Efren receives a message from you he can begin responding to your messages. Note that all incoming and outgoing JPay messages are screened by the MDOC.
