How to Bail Bonds Make Money

After the amount of the bail becomes known, the defendant must contact the person who will pay the bail. Not everyone is able to pay the entire cost of collateral, so they resort to the help of agencies for the payment of collateral. The defendant or relatives of the defendant pay 10% of the amount to the Denver bail bonds agency.

The remaining cost is paid by the agency. What is the benefit for the agency? The interest that was paid by the defendant is not returned to him, regardless of whether he appears in court or not. So, we can assume that these 10-20% will be the possible profit of the agency. If the defendant appears in court, the remaining funds will be returned to the agency.
