Scams exist in every industry. Including those related to bail bonds. We’re not even suggesting that it’s bail bond agencies creating the problems. We just want you to be on alert.
Consider this recent warning issued from another state law enforcement department. Apparently, someone was calling defendants out on bail and posing to be bail bondsmen. The caller claimed that the courts wanted more money and their bail had been revoked.
It was all a big lie. A huge scam. And, of course, some fell for it.
We haven’t heard of this particular bail bonds scam happening in Pennsylvania, but it’s one that is surfacing across the country. We suggest that you always err on the side of caution.
