Andrews Lock and Key has been vigorously trying to inform the public about the locksmith scam issue in the country and in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. This year we have taken action by starting the Arizona Professional Locksmith Association and have been trying to work with Google to remove the locksmith scammers from Google Local and Map products. Unfortunately, there is always more that arise every time we flag a company or we end up getting suspended when trying to add additional locations in effort to expand our reach in the Phoenix area due to "quality issues". But today we were able to get a locksmith scammer on video.
It is very important that when you contact a locksmith you get a direct quote over the phone for an exact price that it will cost to open your vehicle. Any professional locksmith has the knowledge to know what it will take to open the vehicle and exactly what they will charge for the service. If it wasn't for us, this guy could have been charge almost $300 to unlock his Ford Fusion because of a "high security door latch" among other listed reasons that made the bill jump from $43 to almost $300.
