ok it's a long story so to be short, a few years ago myself and one of my roomates bailed a buddy out of jail. in order to do so we needed to get a bail bondsman, well we co-signed his bond. He has since fled the country and and now the bondsman has contacted my mother looking for $$. The thing is that this "buddy" has very powerful parents both who work for the UN. So i have in my possesion a letter from his parents notorized from the UN and on UN letter head stating that they take full responsiblity for their sons issues, any legal fees or anything else related to this. so at this point i don't know what to do, do i need to contact a lawyer ? am i going to have to pay his $50k bond. i am really stressed out. i have called this so called "buddies" mother and left a message but that is the only step i have taken so far. Should i call the bondsman and forward them a copy of the letter ? would that take the responibility off of me? any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
