Are You Connecting with a Real Local Locksmith in Tacoma?

If you’ve searched theĀ internetĀ for a Tacoma-based locksmith you’ve likely encountered the myriad of “so-called” locksmith companies in the area. Many of those are scams.

When you dial their “local” number, it rings in Florida, Texas etc. to a call center that sells your service call to a local person that is willing to pay the most to them for the referral. That so called $15.00 service call they advertise often balloons to several hundred dollars and depending on the situation even more. We have on occasion responded to calls from Jesse Jones of Kiro TV, to help out victims of these charlatans.

Don’t get scammed. Ask for a business license number and investigate it accordingly.

As of July 24, 2015 it is unlawful to: advertise as a locksmith without the inclusion of the business license number. Scam locksmiths misrepresent where the physical location of the business is in order to use a local telephone number that does not connect locally.
If you have been a victim of one of these scam artists you can file a complaint with the Attorney General Office.
