Here are a few steps you can take to avoid becoming a victim of a locksmith scam in Sydney. While it may seem like a great offer to choose a cheap price it may not be a legitimate locksmith that arrives to do the job.
There are lots of consumer complaints with examples that have been reported on national television or other media where a simple call out fee turns into hundreds of dollars in door lock or frame repairs from poor locksmith services typically from unmarked vehicles.
The practice can be referred to as ‘bait and switch’ where there is a very cheap call out fee, but numerous charges incurred afterwards.
“I’ve seen and heard about so many people getting caught out from cheap prices they click on from Google Ads to then find out the person turns up in their family sedan, rips the lock out of the door & tries to extort money for new hardware. It leaves people in a helpless situation and vulnerable.”
