My son was taken to jail for simple assalt. He called home to get us to go his bond. The court had put him under a $1000.00 bond. When I called A- Bail the guy at A-bail told me I would need to send by my Visa card since I live in North Carolina the money and they would go get him out of jail which I did and he went and got him out of jail. The total I sent was $120.00 for their fee plus $13.00 for the jail fee and I don't know why but I had to send the $1000.00 also for a total I sent to A-Bail was $1133.00. He said that the $1000.00 would be returned to us after the court date. He said to allow 2 weeks for it to clear the court and then it would take up to 2 weeks for them to get the money transferred back to my Visa account. My son and the fellow that actually did the assalt went to the DA and the fellow told the truth and to make a long story short, the DA dismissed the charge before it went to court. This was about two weeks after the assalt charge against my son. I sent the money to A-Bail on May 11, 2007,the same day of the assalt charge. I have been trying ever since after the first month as he promised to return the $1000.00 to get A- Bail to send my $1000.00 back to me. I have talked to everyone there including the owner and they keep saying they will send it and don't. I even have the owners message on the answering machine saying he will transfer the money today and still doesn't. Everyone there has told me "we will send it" or they make up some excuse.Today is August 20th. ,3 months later. I can't understand how a business can remain open by stealing money from people.
