Do You Really Know Your Carlsbad Locksmith?

Posted on Thursday, October 7, 2010 in Locksmith San Diego, locksmith scam

It’s a question you really don’t think about. You think of a locksmith with same consideration of a plumber, or electrician. A service guy who fixes a problem then leaves, and you don’t need to worry about it until it needs to be fixed or serviced again. A locksmith doesn’t fall under that category.

A locksmith is a professional to be compared with a family doctor, or a trusted mechanic who wont over charge you, and tells you whats really wrong with your car. The reason being, locksmiths are in close personal ties with your locks; the things that keep thieves out of your home, keep you sleeping soundly knowing that you wont be intruded on. Locks are an essential part of keeping your mind at ease, and those expensive things you cherish in your possession. When you call a locksmith to change your locks, or make a key, that person has direct access to your locks pin combination ( the part of the lock that meets up with your key to monitor access ). If you don’t do your homework correctly, you could end up being part of the Nation Wide ( yes, Nation Wide ) Locksmith Scam.

When you hear the word nation wide, you don’t think Carlsbad, Ca, or the fact that in you calling a local locksmith in Carlsbad could be part of this scam? Let’s step back a moment, and observe what this Locksmith Scam is. If you want the fast answer, give yourself a hot minute to check out the video below.

Scary huh? The thing is though, regardless of media coverage, this horrible scam still goes on rampant. In the San Diego area alone 91% of the ads in the phone book and web sites online are these “Scammers”. These scammers have a perfected system of duck and dodge that keeps them in business because you, the customer, aren’t up to date on whats happening. Mr. Keyman has remained vigilant, on this cause, and although we blog as much as we can regarding this scam, it still happens in our local San Diego County and yes Carlsbad, Ca Neighborhoods. If you live in or around any of these neighborhoods below, you need to be aware if your calling a Carlsbad locksmith.

So, besides the scam, what else do you need to keep yourself safe from. Well, if you don’t know who’s arriving to your house to change your locks, and to make a series of keys for your new home, something you should keep in mind is that this “locksmith” goes back to his van and makes copies of keys. If you don’t know who your locksmith is, this is something of your concern. The locksmith could make copies for himself, after being welcomed into your home and come back later and rob you! This all sounds like something on television but its very real.

This post has been all doom and gloom, but it’s important to know these things, especially in these tough financial times. Be careful, and be vigilant, and know your locksmith.
