Bait and switch is a cute term that refers to a nasty con game. If you’re the victim of a bait and switch scam you’ve purchased one item only to be given something that doesn’t match the description of what you purchased. Bait and switch typically involve businesses who use the tactic to lure customers in by advertising a great product at a fantastic price only to provide something that’s quite different.
Identifying That you Were a Victim of Bait and Switch
The FTC has done an excellent job of creating guidelines that clarify when a “bait and switch” situation has happened.
According to the FTC, you weren’t a victim of a bait and switch con if you:
Were convinced to buy something different
If the seller simply runs out of whatever item they were promoting, especially when the business clearly stated that they only had limited quantities of the promoted item
The only way you are a true victim of bait and switch is when the seller clearly had no intention of selling the promoted product.
Most of us have watched enough procedural shows to know that bail is what you pay to be sprung from jail while you wait for your case to make its way to court. Most of us also know that a bail bond agency, like San Marcos Bail Bonds, is a business that helps you cover the cost of your bail. In most situations, that’s is where our knowledge ends.
Very few people understand that before we can help bail you out of jail you’ll have to sign a bail agreement.
If you’re wondering what a bail agreement is, you’re not alone. It is seldom explained properly.
The bail agreement is a surprisingly simple contract that serves as a binding legal document between you, the Indemnitor, and us, the bail bond agency that wants to help you reunite with your loved ones.
The agreement is very clear. Every single aspect of our relationship is carefully spelled out. The bail agreement discusses the terms of your bail, serves as an agreement that you’ll attend all of your mandatory court dates and lays out the bail payment plan we agree on.
We feel that it’s important that you understand you don’t have to sign the bail agreement right away. Take as much time as you need to review the information and decide if we’re your best option. We don’t want you to do anything you’ll regret.
When you sign our bail agreement, we want you to understand what you’re getting into. We encourage you to not only take our time and carefully read over the agreement but to also come to us with any questions.
Our willingness to discuss every single aspect of our bail bond agreement is just one of the perks you’ll enjoy when you turn to San Marcos Bail Bonds for help with your bail situations.
