Locksmith Scams


According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, some locksmiths advertising in your local telephone book may not be local at all. They may not have professional training. What's more, some of them may use intimidating tactics and overcharge you.

Keys To Avoiding A Bad Locksmith

  • Shop around and compare prices.
  • Get a written estimate before work starts.
  • Always pay by credit card. This helps to dispute charges if you feel ripped off.
  • Any locksmith requiring cash payments should raise a red flag with consumers.
