Flatirons Locksmiths: Protecting Yourself From Locksmith Scams in Broomfield, CO
When you find yourself in a lock-out situation, the last thing on your mind is whether you can trust the locksmith you called. If you have locked yourself out of your car or home, or if you have recently experienced a break-in, in which security systems within your home or office have been compromised, you are indeed in a vulnerable situation. These are the times we look to security specialists to ease our minds and get us focused back on things that matter most, our safety and security.
Unfortunately, it is during our most vulnerable moments that scam artists strike – taking advantage of a bad situation. When you are faced with an emergency in which you need a locksmith’s services, the first thing to do is make a call to someone you think is a local locksmith. In some situations, when attempting to locate a locksmith in your area, you are directed to a call center that promises to make you an appointment with a locksmith in your area.
This isn’t the best position to be in, some of these call centers are operators for a scam company, not a locksmith. Even if you ask the operator at one of these call centers to connect you with a locksmith you may know in your area, they do not oblige, sending out an individual from a company you have never heard of before. To add insult to injury, these “mock” locksmiths charge exorbitant prices – sometimes 3 or 4 times as much as the job is actually worth.
The only way to protect yourself from scam locksmiths is to find a locksmith in your area who you know is reputable. Make sure the locksmith you choose is legitimate and ask questions. Such as instead of asking; “Are you guys located in Broomfield?” ask “Where are you guys located?” and if they can’t answer that very simple question then you know they are not local.
