Like most businesses, some bail agencies are owned and operated by honest, hard-working, reputable professionals and some are not. Please protect yourself and your family by following these few simple consumer bail tips:
- Be sure you only contract with a licensed bail agent. Ask to see the bail agent’s license and identification prior to any bail transaction.
- Be sure the bail agent charges you only legal rates. The premium charged for a bail bond in most states is normally 10% of the full bail amount. Any additional charges should be itemized and explained to your satisfaction. Be sure you are given receipts for all charges.
- Be sure you are given copies of all signed contracts and agreements.
