Lockout scams is becoming popular since there are locksmith sharks out there that take advantage of people that need a car lockout service, home or business. They know you need to be somewhere and they try to bank on that. This is why you need to be really careful, and don’t hesitate to call more than one locksmith office to get the right Lockout quote. I was amazed when I saw this video so I decided to share it and to blog about it.

The Video is called shady locksmiths and to be honest it is shady, I mean they charged a lady a little over $100 for a simple car unlock. and the reason why, is because they have all types of google ads that put them a head of the competition, and when they answer the phone they will give you a quote that you like, but as soon as they get to you and they see that you are in a rush, the whole scenario change and the bill is doubled if not tripled.
