Run Local LocksmithRip-off, Rude, Deception

My son had locked his car keys in his trunk, which were the only keys for the car as the second set was lost. He was at a sports gated complex when this happened. They explained that the $29 is for showing up and gave an estimate of $45 for the rest of the work. The only credit card he had was AMEX and they don't take that. He finally scraped together $100 by borrowing from his friends. They showed up about 1--1/2 hours after the "locksmith" was dispatched. It was close to closing time when the gates would be locked. The locksmith demanded $165 so we had no choice, but to allow them to charge our credit card for the additional. He wouldn't charge the entire amount and demanded taking the cash first. He open the drivers side door using inflatable balloons which tripped the alarm, which in turn put the car in a shutdown mode. Using the trunk button, just set off the alarm. The "Locksmith" tired to break into the trunk thru the backseat armrest, then gave up. He they pronounced that he had opened the car for my son, said he had other calls and abandoned my son. I plan to file complaint with the states attorney's office and other government agencies.

    Last night I was clearing my kitchen. I picked up the entire litter on the table and put it in the dustbin. Today when I was searching for the keys to my car, I realized that the keys were kept on the table under that litter and it was cleaned up along with the other stuff. I then called Run Local Locksmith. They came to my rescue and unlocked the car for me. I would like to thank Run Local Locksmith for their support.

    The keys of my BMW got locked inside it accidently. I used the internet to find who can open its door without any damage. The first few calls to the service providers were either transferred to the automated voice recorders or were not responded at all, which I found quite strange. Run Local Locksmith not only took the call at 2 in night but also sent the expert automobile locksmith within next 25 minutes.

    I dont know about others, but my experience was different. They were a little late, but their work was excellent. I will give them 10/10 on their work performance. I took services from them just a month back and it was the best services i could ever get. The team was so humble and wonderful in cooperation and the charges were exactly explained to us and the same are visible on the websites. They offer lock installation, lock repair, and installation of locks with pick-proof cylinders. Today, Run Local is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology such as biometrics and high security locks. Providing a wide range of products, styles and finishes, Run Local can install what you need.

    I am sure that you people have had a real bad experience but just to share my experience as it was really good to hire services of Run Local Locksmiths technicians.
    I went off locking the door inside out by mistake as the new technology door of high security, I called one of the local artisans and they said we can not give this services as this technology is not with us . I placed two guards on the door that night and tried another artisans they replied in the same manner.
    I called Run Local Locksmith as they operate 24hours*7nights and even on holidays. I called them at night around 12am and the technicians was available at my place in 15mins he checked the door and replaced the lock in 25mins with the high proficiency and effectiveness.
    I was so happy and delighted with the services that the charge of $450 seemed too reasonable to me.

    This scam outfit is NOT accredited by the BBB, and in fact has an "F" rating for every location nationwide. Check here: http://www.bbb.org/west-florida/business-reviews/locksmith-supply-stores/run-local-locksmith-in-plant-city-fl-90068396 (If the URL is missing, it's the BBB, use a search engine, then type in "run local locksmith" into THEIR search engine)

    They are also NOT members of ALOA, check here: http://www.findalocksmith.com/search.aspx (If the URL is missing, it's find a locksmith (dot) com - No spaces)

    They are part and parcel of the illegal foreign nationals running scams out of Florida, but advertising as "local" - Nearly ALL of the technicians are non-work visa'd individuals, and the parent company is under indictment in multiple states. $20 million dollars a year for these folks. See here: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGLL_enUS373US373&q=locksmith+scams (If the URL is missing, search any search engine for "locksmith scams")

    Check out the poor English in many of the posts FOR the business. Most of the people are foreign nationals who are NOT visa'd to work here. That $20 billion above? ALL shipped out of the country.

    About the original poster? As a locksmith, and a legitimate one, under NO circumstances should any Kwikset other than a SmartKey take longer than 10 minutes to pick, and that's for a noob or a non-proficient 'smith. The rest of us can do it in 2. While you'll ALWAYS pay a higher cost for hardware from a locksmith than from say, Home Depot, under no circumstances should it be anywhere near $110. The pick to open cost should have been minimal - In So Cal, the entire job would have come in under $100.

    How the scam works: A company in a different country (always the same one) sets up thousands of "local" phone numbers here, then mass registers them in Google Local and other search engines. When you call, you get an operator in New York or Florida, who has NO clue where you are, but dispatches a "technician" - The "technician again, is generally a non-work visa'd individual, usually here on a student visa. The parent company sets fake prices, shill prices, as lead-in's... $19 car unlocks, $29 service calls, etc. They tell the "technician" that they'll require XX of dollars for the service, ALWAYS a higher than normal price to begin with. Whatever the "technician" forces/intimidates you into paying on top of that is the ONLY money he makes. It is then incumbent on him to charge as much as possible under any pretense as possible so he gets some money/pay. The "technician" then splits out the company's "fee" - Gets a Money Order, and sends it to a collection address out of the country.

    Some of the "technicians" sell the key codes and key copies for homes to an lesser element for fast cash - Leaving you open to car theft (not reimbursable without a forced entry), and home invasions and robberies.

    If a technician demands far, FAR more than he quoted, call the police, while he's there. Do NOT let him intimidate you. If he knows you're calling the police, 9 times out of 10 he will leave, as he does not want to be found with burglary tools (picks and such) without a business or other license. Then call a REAL locksmith and get your place rekeyed, as the fake locksmith has your codes.

    Fake locksmiths are a very real, and very dangerous problem. Be proactive.

    Oh, yes, and in response to Fred saying they are Israeli...the whole company is and they do not have licenses. The one I dated did not go to school for it and they learned on the job and with cars he ended up handling them after this terrible error was made. The cars became serioius issues after they caused problems so he had to advise or be there for car lockouts.

    I know who the locksmith is because he told me this story after he convinced me to go out with him. He came to do my work and then talked me into going out with him. He was cruel, rude and used me. I was told later I am an old woman and he would never be interested in someone who has been married and all his locksmith friends from Run-Local-Locksmith told him to just have fun with old women and don't take them serioiusly. I did have the misfortune of hearing how loud and rudely they all spoke on my last date with him. They drank a lot.

    He is not a good person. He told the story as if justified but obviously there is the other side. I can imagine he did this after the hell he put me through in just a few dates. When he told me it sounded as if he had done something wrong because there should not have been so many issues and he admitted to the arguing. He does yell and even yelled when I was crying softly trying to understand why he is so cruel. His friends working there I am certain are worse since I heard them all speaking. They are a bunch of harsh speaking men even if their language is another language I know it is not good because they scream and yell a lot at each other and I experienced it directed at me when I did nothing.

    He explained the amount of money the company is pulling in to me and how they never let them sleep. They work like this because they are immigrants looking for a better life. I am not one to yell and fight but I have first-hand experience that this is the norm for them.

    This company is a scam outfit! Call the police and also file a complaint with Lisa madigans office, The Atttorney General. I am quite sure this guy is most likely not to be licensed. The company is not. You can check this out on the license look up section of the Illinois dept of financial and professional regulation. This is what I believe to be an Israeli organized crime ring. Google "David Peer arrest" and dependable locks. The police can arrest this individual for just calling himself a locksmith. It is a class c Misdemeanor and a felony for the second arrest. This company Probably rips off 1000s of consumers each and every day across the nation. Please file a complaint with The attorney general and demand action.
