Security with a Conscience

Avoiding Locksmith Scammers
Let’s talk about a less pleasant but incredibly important topic: locksmith scammers. It’s an unfortunate reality that in our field, as in many others, there are individuals out there looking to take advantage of urgent and vulnerable situations. But fear not! We’re here to assist and arm you with knowledge so you can spot these scammers a mile away and protect yourself and your property.
Red Flags to Watch Out For
Vague or Non-Existent Local Address
Okey Locksmith is situated at 3121 SW 29th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73119 United States of America and you can come visit us any time you are need of locksmith needs. Be wary of services that can’t provide a local address or only offer a vague location.
Suspiciously Low Quotes
If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Scammers often lure customers with low prices, only to drastically increase the cost once the job is done.
Lack of Identification and Credentials
A reputable locksmith will arrive in the front door, in a marked vehicle, wearing a uniform, and ready to present their identification and qualifications. If they’re hesitant or unable to provide these, that’s a big red flag.
Pushy Tactics or Unnecessary Services
Be cautious of locksmiths who immediately suggest drilling or replacing your lock without attempting other methods first. Scammers often use destructive lock installation methods to hike up the price.
No Clear Invoice or Explanation of Work
A professional locksmith will always provide a detailed invoice and be willing to explain the work they’ve done. Avoid locksmiths who are vague about their services or pricing.
How to Protect Yourself
Do Your Research
Take the time to conduct research and choose a reputable locksmith in Oklahoma City before you find yourself in an emergency situation.
Check Reviews and Testimonials
Look for online reviews and testimonials from former employees and previous customers. They can provide valuable insights into the locksmith’s reliability and service quality.
Ask for an Estimate
Before agreeing to any work, ask for a clear estimate on the phone. Ensure it includes potential costs like service fees, hardware, labor and emergency service premiums. Call us for a quick estimate at (405) 703-8943.
Don’t be afraid to ask the client for identification when the locksmith arrives. A professional won’t hesitate to prove that they are who they say they are.
Understand the Process
Ask the associated locksmiths more about their training and intended methods. A skilled locksmith rarely needs to drill a lock as a first resort.
