Why do I need this bond?
Colorado money transmission surety bonds guarantee that principals (money transmission professionals) conduct business in compliance with Title 12, Article 52 of the Colorado Revised Statutes and all other laws applicable to the business of money transmission. If fraudulent activity occurs as a result of malpractice conducted by the principal, consumers will not face any unjust financial harm. The principal will then be responsible for reimbursing the surety in a timely and professional manner.
