Fidelity Crime Shield Bond

Surety1 helps protect your customers from criminal acts  

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t need a Fidelity Crime Shield Bond to protect people from others who would commit crimes against a company or individual. Sadly, that’s not the case. Surety1 wants to earn your trust as your bonding partner by ensuring you get your bond quickly and at the lowest fee possible. We have access to over 18 partners whom we trust to place your bond.

What is a Fidelity Crime Shield Bond and why do I need one?

A Fidelity Crime Shield Bond protects your property from loss caused by fraudulent acts by your employees. In this sense, it functions as a form of insurance protection. Dishonest employees can commit theft in a variety of ways, through physical appropriation, or by digital means, social engineering or embezzlement. You need to protect your property from an unscrupulous hire. If you operate a business that employs more than five employees, you should consider this form of protection. You may also be required to present this bond to obtain certain government licenses or to engage in contracts with other entities. It’s crucial to have this protection, especially if your business is involved in a partnership with a government agency. This type of protection is equally important if you run a shop that repairs or services items and requires customers to return for their goods, because you are entrusted with the control and care of customers’ property.
