Why Accept Hidden Fees?


When you purchase something, you know, from the get go, exactly how much you will be paying for that thing. You would never buy anything if you knew that the person selling it to you might surprise with an extra fee. If you wouldn’t accept that kind of treatment with regular purchases, why would you be okay with it when getting a bail bond?

There are many of our competitors out there that love to surprise their clients with hidden fees. They do this as a way to get extra money out of their clients, money that the clients did not know they would need to pay. The problem with these fess is, that once the clients learn about them, it is often too late to do anything other than pay, or else their loved one will be taken back into custody.

This is why bad bail bond companies love hidden fees so much. They hide the fees in the contract that their client signs. By signing the contract, the client has agreed to all of its terms, including the fees that are hidden within. Due to this fact, the clients are trapped. Refusing to pay the fees will result in their loved one’s bail being revoked, and the person being taken back into custody.

This is why it is important to always read contracts before signing them, and why it is best to bail someone out of jail with Penny Bail Bonds in San Bernardino. Here at Penny Bail Bonds in San Bernardino, we never surprise our clients with hidden fees. We despise the practice. We prefer to tell our clients the exact price of the bail bond, and how much they will need to pay. We never try to make more money of them.

A Brief History of Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a Latin American holiday that is celebrated on November first. It is a holiday for people to remember and celebrate their ancestors. While mostly associated with Mexico, Day of the dead is a holiday that is celebrated throughout Latin America as is beginning to spread in popularity across the US as well.

Dia de los Muertos and its origins can be traced back to the ancient Aztecs. In their beliefs, death was simply another stage of life, much like being born.

A person dying was not a sad occasion, it just meant that the person was moving on to the afterlife. Death was not something to be mourned, but celebrated. The Aztecs had a month long celebration around August to pay their respects to their ancestors and honor the gods of the underworld.

During the 16th century, Spaniards became to colonize many of the territories within Latin America. As they did this, they brought with them their Catholic traditions and beliefs. Two of those traditions were All Saints Day, and All Souls Day. All Saints Day was celebrated on November 1st, and All Souls Day was celebrated on November 2nd. These were days meant for honoring ancestors, and so, with pressure from the conquistadors, the ancient traditions were moved to coincide with these two church approved holidays.

Contrary to its name, the day of the dead is actually a 2 day celebration. According to belief, starting at midnight, October 31st, the spirits of ancestors are able to cross over into the real world 24 hours. The first spirits to come are the youngest, babies and children. They walk the earth for 24 hours, spending time with their families, before returning to the spirit world at midnight on November 1st. After the young ones, the adults come next. They too, spend the next 24 hours with their loved ones before returning to the spirit world.

Dia de los Muertos is chance for families to pay their respects to their ancestors. They do this by sharing stories, playing games, and simply bonding as a family. By doing all of this, they ensure that their loved ones will never be forgotten.

Be Wary of Bail Scams


We all have those family members that we would do anything for. Then we have those family members who we’d help if they were in trouble because there are family. However, we don’t really talk to them that often. Unfortunately, there are scammers out there who will take advantage of that fact.

There is a popular scam out there were someone pretends to be a distant family member of another person. They usually like to pretend to be the grandchild of a person because they know grandparents will do just about anything to help their grandchildren. The scammer will pretend to be the grandchild, or another family member, and say that they have been arrested in some far off place.

The scammer will ask for two things, bail money and secrecy. They will say something along the lines of: “I don’t want anyone else in the family to know about this.” They will ask that several thousands of dollars be wired to them. They do this because the money will not be able to be reclaimed, and they do not want their victim to talk to anyone else about the problem.

To counteract this, it is important that you always check in with the people who know the person who claims to be calling you. Talk to the person’s parents or friends, someone who would know where that relative is. You may learn that he or she is safe in their room, not in some random jail. Just by doing this simple thing, you can save yourself thousands of dollars.

Whenever you get a call from a random number, and the person on the other end is asking for any amount money, proceed with caution. Think about how often, if at all, your family members would do something like this. If you are ever in a situation like this, and it doesn’t feel quite right, trust your instincts and investigate the matter before accepting that it is true. It could save you thousands of dollars, and numerous headaches.


Creating an Emergency Kit


As Californians, many of us know that the “Big One” could be just around the corner. We have to live in a constant state of preparedness. This means having plans for what to do in the event of an earthquake, and having supplies ready. The following is a list of supplies that every household should have stashed away in a safe place where everybody knows, just in case.

  • 3 gallons of water per person. This should last each individual 3 days.
  • A 3 day supply of non-perishable foods
  • Baby food, diapers, and wipes if you have a baby
  • Pet food and extra water if you have a pet
  • A can opener
  • Cups, utensils, and plates
  • First aid kit
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Battery powered, or crank powered, radio and flashlight. Plus extra batteries.
  • A whistle
  • Portable phone charger
  • Prescription medicine and glasses for those who need them
  • List of contact info for family members and friends
  • Important documents in a waterproof and fireproof container
  • Waterproof matches
  • A blanket
  • A supply of cash for food and travel for at least a week
  • A change of clothes and shoes for each family member
  • Activities for young children, such as crayons and coloring books

All of this can be very helpful in the event of any emergency. While this can offer a great amount of peace of mind, it is important to remember that certain items should be refreshed every six months or so. Things like canned foods, water, and batteries should be replaced from time to time to ensure they are still good in the event of an earthquake.


Texting While Driving Is Illegal


Being distracted while driving can be very risky. If a driver is not fully paying attention to the road around him or her, they run the chance of hitting something they could have avoided. Car accidents can be very destructive, especially at higher speeds. This is why many state around the country have laws against driving while using a cellphone.

Just this year, California updated its laws regarding cellphones and distracted driving. It used to be, that only using a phone to make a call or send a text while driving was illegal. Now, this new version of the law covers all hands-on usage of a cellphone while driving. The law prohibits drivers from holding and operating any wireless device while behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Drivers over the age of 18 are still allowed to use wireless devices if they are in a hands-free mode.

A driver caught using a wireless device while driving, for the first time will face a $20 dollar fine. A second and any subsequent offense will earn the driver a $50. This may not sound like much, these are just base numbers. After assessment of the situation, the fines will most likely increase to $150 for a first time offense, and over $250 for any subsequent offenses.

Ultimately, texting, or using a phone at all, while driving is not worth it. Not only does a person run the risk of paying a fine, they run the risk of causing a serious accident. A distracted driver can very easily bring harm to themselves or someone else simply because they were not paying enough attention while driving.

Do not take that risk, the message can wait until you reach your destination.
