Locksmiths--Commercial Informative - Beware Of Shady Locksmiths
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I wholly agree with a recent review describing a bad experience with a dishonest locksmith. I had the same experience when the door lock of my restaurant needed repair. I called and was told this was a simple job and would be around $60.
The locksmith arrived and proceeded to dismantle the entire door. At this point, he informed me that this was a "special" lock that would cost $400!
I disputed this, and was informed that if I didn't pay it, he would simply leave it this way.
I had no choice but to agree to his dishonest tactics, and of course, he would not accept a check or credit card--he followed me to the bank and accepted only cash.
Moral of the story: Get it in writing, before even one screw is removed!
