Unlock the truth – About those who want to unlock your door and your wallet.
Locked out? frustrating indeed but beware of those who will try to empty your bank account.
There are certain individuals who are placing hundred of listings in a single phone book and/or search engine with different names, phone numbers and phony addresses tailored to convince consumers that they are dealing with a local company. when you call the number you are actually connected to a call center (many times out-of-state)
where you will be quoted a very low price (usually 15$). the person claiming to be a locksmith typically arrives in unmarked vehicle without proper credentials and may preform unnecessary sub standard work.
In many cases the consumer is told the lock cannot be opened and therefore, it is necessary to drill it out and replace it with a new lock. the bill sometimes is 10 to 20 times higher than the original phone quote and the individual may only accept cash for services preformed.
