With Locksmith scams on the rise like never before, Citywide Locksmith, the most reliable locksmith company in Toronto shared useful and effective tips to stay away from the clutches of imposter locksmith companies, here today. The 50-year old company which has earned the trust of customers in Toronto with its commitment to transparency and integrity comes to the rescue of credulous customers getting duped by fraudulent locksmiths.
Locksmith services are mostly required in crisis situations, having misplaced one’s car or home keys when the customer is tensed and vulnerable. He sends an SOS to the first name that flashes on his Google search, little knowing that what follows is a nightmare in the form of an astronomical bill and uncalled for harassment
According to Lucas Shearer, Owner, Citywide Locksmith, “It is very unfortunate that these fraudulent companies are taking unsuspecting customers for a ride, faking their identities under the pretense of established companies like us and thus defaming the entire industry. Citywide Locksmith, being the pioneering locksmith in Toronto, considers it as its moral responsibility to make customers aware of such malicious intentions and protect them from getting deceived by these counterfeit companies.”
Tips to keep Locksmith scams at bay
• Be safe than sorry – Don’t wait for emergency to strike and then end up taking a hasty decision in panic. Do a bit of groundwork and research beforehand and keep the names and contact details of reputed locksmiths in your locality handy. Citywide Locksmith caters to all major locations in Toronto for the last five decades and by availing our services, you can be rest assured of a hassle-free and value-for-money experience.
• Get the expert – Don’t judge a firm by its fancy name or attractive advertisements in the local newspaper. Try and find out about the credentials of the firm, its past records and market goodwill. A fraud company is unlikely to have a proper office set up and its so-called ‘toll free’ numbers will take a toll on your patience when they get answered by unskilled and clueless call centre executives stationed somewhere outside your locality. Citywide Locksmith has all the necessary infrastructure, resources, professional acumen and expertise to deftly handle your emergency situations.
• Be doubly-sure – Don’t be gullible and blindly trust whoever turns up at your door. All reputed organizations will have branded cars or vans for servicing customers. So immediately raise an alarm if the locksmith arrives in a non-branded vehicle. Ask for his identification proof along with the company’s license proof to be doubly sure and allay your concerns.
• Get everything in black and white – Don’t make the mistake of relying on verbal commitments or tall claims of price discounts in advertisements which invariably entails hidden costs. Always insist for a proper cost estimate on company letterhead mentioning all details clearly before you make the payment. A fraud locksmith will urge you to pay only in cash and not provide you with a valid receipt in lieu of the payment. Never fall in their trap. An authentic company will always provide alternative payment facilities to their customers and furnish proper receipts.
“A little bit of alertness on your end can help you in identifying the fraudsters and save you from possible disasters. You can be rest assured that you will be in safe hands like thousands of our customers who vouch for our credibility”, added Shearer.
