Bail Bondsman Scams

There are many ways to avoid bail bondsman scams. Be skeptical of new businesses and never respond to unsolicited calls or emails. And if a company asks you for your credit card information, be extremely wary of it. No legitimate company will ask you for such information. It may come back to haunt you. Then there are some tips to avoid getting ripped off. Here are some of them: Make sure the business you’re dealing with is reputable.

Don’t respond to unsolicited bail bondsman emails. Reputable bail bond agents do not contact prospective clients by email. In fact, they’ll never contact you via email. But if you get an email from a scammer claiming to be a bail bondsman, don’t reply. Typically, a scam starts with an email to the police, which they open and read. Once they’ve read the email, the scammer will attach a file that gives them access to your arrest records. This is a way to convince you to pay more money for a bail bond.

Another common bail bondsman scam is the “Grandparents Scam.” The scammer claims to be a relative of yours. They will ask you for money to pay the bail bondsman or pay for medical bills. The scammer will ask for a large sum of money. The money is often wired to an unknown carrier, such as an unidentified white van with no plates. However, if you have received an email requesting payment, never respond.
