Sadly, despite the effort of our company including fellow legit locksmith providers in town, there are still tons of frauds exploiting hard-earned money from poor, unsuspecting clients.
Whether you have been conned by fake locksmiths, or are fortunate enough to have not yet undergone such deception, here are a few important factors you need to know about scammers posing as locksmith companies:
- Fake lock and key companies use generic business names and post advertisements online and in print. They usually go with names that are catchy and easy to remember like “AAA Lock & Key” or “24/7 Locksmith Services”.
- False contact numbers and addresses are posted on fraud locksmiths’ ads. The fake number is usually traced back to a call center situated at a different location.
- Associates of locksmith scams arrive at your doorstep in unmarked vehicles. Whereas, trustworthy lock and key services should have vans with the logo of their business imprinted where it is easily visible to the customers.
- Scammers overcharge with what they call “additional services”. While they may offer cheaper quoted rates at first, they will increase your final bill with unnecessary charges. Bogus lock and key companies also demand payment even before their work is done. They will go as far as convince you that they need extra payment to compensate for the supplemental tools they used, or even frighten you if you refuse to pay them.
Don’t put your safety on the line! Be proactive against locksmith scams! More importantly, make sure you avail the services of licensed professionals, like All City Locksmith. Your satisfaction and convenience are what we value most.
