Ticket Snipers Service fee is subject to all the Terms & Conditions of our Service Fee Refund, Customer is responsible for being knowledgeable of the proper Terms & Conditions of our Service Fee Refund. Customer must comply with all the Terms & Conditions of our Service Fee Refund which entails the Customer to read and return the necessary documents (TR-215) to Ticket Snipers in a timely manner.
If the courts reduce the bail, Ticket Snipers offers a refund of our fee less our document drafting charge ($99 for all violations) and any amount your fine is reduced by the court only if: (1) the original violation is not dismissed by the courts, and/or (2) the ticket is not reduced to be a zero point violation (example ticket changed to VC-21710 “coasting”) . For example, if a customer gets $75 reduced from their red light camera fine amount, Ticket Snipers would refund the Service Fee less the bail reduction of $75. Failure to use our documents in the TBWD process, or failure to proceed with the TBWD process, will void the partial service fee refund. Once we receive notice (TR-215) of your case and in the unlikely event the court finds you guilty without a bail reduction Ticket Snipers will refund 100% of your service fee back to you immediately.
