Oops, I Opened my Neighbor’s Mail!!

mail-theft

The postal service isn’t infallible. They’re prone to making human mistakes. One of the most common mistakes the postal service does is occasionally putting your neighbor’s mail in your mailbox.

Most of us don’t really look at the mail before we open it. Since it’s in our mailbox, we automatically assume it’s for us. As a result, occasionally we open a piece of mail that belongs to our neighbor.

This can instantly lead to a sense of panic because most of us know that opening other people’s mail is a federal offense.

If you’ve accidentally opened a piece of mail that isn’t yours, the first thing you need to do is take a deep breath and relax. Unfortunately, these things happen.

The best way to deal with the situation is to return the mail to the envelope, seal it with a ...

A savings account acts as a financial security blanket. Ideally, this savings account will be for future large wanted purchases like a wedding, a home, vacations, and your children’s college tuition. This is an account that should never be touched to withdraw money from – money only gets deposited into it. However, these savings accounts also come in handy when unexpected payments come up. A good example of this would be the sudden need to pay for bail.

Bail can be thousands of dollars, even if a person is bailing out of jail with a bail bond. Instead of having to scramble to get the money for bail, this person can hopefully get most, if not all, of the funds from their savings account.

There are many ways to grow a savings account, which include the obvious: saving a portion of each ...

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

It is easy to see the negatives when you are involved in a bail bond process, whether you are the one who needs out of jail or you are the one helping a loved one out. It is a terrible situation that no one wants to be in, so obviously seeing the light of the situation is pretty hard.

We here at Cerritos Bail Bond Store want to shed some more light on bail bonds to help you see the advantages and benefits of using bail to get out of jail.

  • Saving money:

    You are paying only 10% of the full bail amount, leaving you with that 90% to save or spend as you need.

What Juveniles Face vs. What Adults Face

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Legally, anyone 17 or younger is considered a juvenile. When a person turns 18, they become a legal adult. A lot people enjoy this time because they feel they have more freedom, and in some respects, they do. However, in addition to the fun that comes with turning 18, there are also added responsibilities. There are big differences between juveniles and adults, especially when it comes to legal matters.

If juveniles are arrested for shoplifting or graffiti, they may have to perform community service and pay some fines, but they will not be sent to prison. They would stand before a judge who would report the consequences, then they would be released back to their parents. If an adult were to be arrested, they would face a jury who would decide whether to convict them of the crime or not...

Advice from Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Being out on bail is not a good reason to live your wild life again. If anything, it should be reason to tame yourself and scale back. Lay low. Surround yourself with supportive and positive friends. Do not succumb to bad influences and habits.

Bailing out of jail may be like a “get out of jail free card” in Monopoly or getting a second shot at your life, but you are encouraged to take this second shot and use it properly and most importantly, wisely.

Bailing out of jail is not a moment to celebrate by going out to a bar and getting wasted, or going for a joyride, or anything like that. It is a moment to celebrate quietly at home.

We do not want to scold you, or deter you from enjoying your newfound freedom. We merely want you to use your time wisely...
