When it comes to running a business, many companies will do whatever they can to make a sale. As we have all seen in the news from time to time, some companies will use some pretty shady and underhanded tactics to make more of a profit. Sadly, this is especially common in the bail bond industry.
A favorite tactic of many bad bail bond companies is to hide fees within the contract of the bail bond. By doing this, they eliminate any chance a clients has of fighting the fees since they signed a contract agreeing to them. This is why you should always read a contract before signing it. Once a contract is signed, the client is stuck paying any fee the contract lists or else their loved one will be taken back into custody.
Some really bad bail bond companies even go so far as having unlicensed bail agents. The state of California requires all bail agents to be licensed. This ensures the agent knows what they are doing and that they have the backing of an insurance company. To avoid getting into serious trouble, you should always ask for a bail agent’s license number and make sure that it is still valid. If any agent refuses to give out their license number, then he or she should be avoided because that should be publicly available information.
