I have met a couple of bounty hunters; I haven't met one I would leave alone with my wallet.
The absolute scummiest landlord I ever had the misfortune of meeting was a retiring/part-time bounty hunter. A lawyer buddy of mine did some asking around and advised that this guy would break more laws than the people he was "recovering"; he was all about the money and no interest in the law or "cleaning up the streets".
I would assume that there must be SOME decent bounty hunters out there, somewhere.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
