ExpertBail Consumer Alert: Bail Bond Scam

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

We recently were informed by a member of the California Bail Agent Association that consumers should be aware of a scam going on in the bail bond industry.  People who have recently conducted a transaction with a bail bond agent are being contacted by an unknown third party claiming to be the bail agent. They are asking people to re-verify their credit card information or saying they need to pay more for the bail bond or the defendant will be re-arrested.

If you are contacted directly by someone with a similar story, do not provide your information.  Hang up and contact your bail bond agent to ensure that you are dealing with a legitimate request.  Also, please contact the authorities and report any information you are able to collect.

Please feel free to contact the ExpertBail team at 800.938.2245 or with any questions or comments.
