In the world of bail bondsmen, as in the rest of the world, there are good people and bad people. While not all of them are intentionally unethical, some just aren’t quite ready for prime time. When you or someone you know has been taken to jail, you want to make sure you have a trusted professional on your side. Here are three types of bail bondsmen that you should always avoid.
The Unprofessional One
This guy or gal just seems a little shady. Maybe they’re working out of a dirty office, or maybe they don’t speak in a professional manner. They could even be condescending, or try to pressure you into signing a contract before you fully understand what you’re signing. Don’t do business with them.
The One Without Credentials
This one talks a big game, but when it comes down to it, they can’t point to any real credentials. They could have an expired license, or a bad rating with the BBB. They have no office, and nobody you know seems to have done business with them. If they can’t back up their words with facts, choose a different company.
The Secretive One
This bondsman is strangely tight-lipped about… well, everything. They are hesitant to share online reviews or their web site URL. They balk when you ask for their license number. They might even try to make you feel silly for asking questions about the bail process, or the contract itself.
