The company, www.bondrefund.com, is apparently sending unsolicited mailers or advertisements to customers who have posted cash bonds in criminal cases and scamming them out of their money.
These mailers guarantee recipients that their claim will be processed by the Clerk’s office if the customer pays for a special “request packet” and presents the packet to our office.
Please keep in mind that these request packets are NOT required to receive refunds on cash bonds, nor are these packets published or endorsed by the Clerk’s office. Cash bonds are either applied to outstanding balances, or disbursed to the customer, without the use of these expensive and misleading forms. The Clerk’s office will never require payment to third parties for the disbursement of payments to individuals who have money held by our office.
If you receive a misleading mailer, you can determine the status of the related bonds by searching the case records on the Clerk’s website or by calling (727) 464-7000.
