New Contact Phone Number

Posted on October 4, 2019 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Things have finally gotten bad enough that I've been forced to change my Business Phone Number!  The previous number has been CLONED by at least one FAKE company who has been passing themselves off as C & S Locksmith Services or stating that they are contracted to do work on our behalf.  This is a Lie! We have not contracted anyone to represent our Business interests.  If anyone continues to receive phone calls from (412) 414-4476 and they state that they are representing C...

Are they Legitimate?

Posted on September 1, 2019 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (1)

Several Years ago I filed a Complaint against these people for unscrupulous and fraudulent business activities.  The Complaint was filed in Chicago - where they were listing their Business Address.  This Complaint was never settled because I was notified that the Attorney General COULD NOT locate this  Company in Chicago, IL.  Otherwise - they were not a Legitimate / Legal Entity.

They are now all over the Internet again - this time with a home address listed in New ...

Confirm The Companies Identity

Posted on August 17, 2019 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (1)

After several follow-up conversations with current and past customers I find it necessary for this Post.

C & S Locksmith Services LLC will always Call / Text you from (412) 414-4476 so if you receive a phone call from someone with any other number and especially an Out-of-State Area Code who claims that they are representing our interests or working on our behalf they are LIARS AND FRAUDS!  I'm utterly disgusted with people showing up at the ...

Neighbor Spoofing

I've become aware of something that I never knew existed until today and I must say - it angered me tremendously!

I've had several calls over the past week or so with folks asking me to stop calling them about Locksmith Services.  I've tried explaining to these people that I have not called them at all about anything - including Locksmith Services and they've all informed me that my number shows up on their Caller ID.

So I dig around and find out about a thing called

Illegitimate Has Struck Again

Posted on July 29, 2019 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (2)

I cannot begin to tell you how frustrating it is to travel to a customer location only to find out that another Locksmith - "legitimate or not" has already been to the location and either did a good job or messed things up horribly and the customer is either pleased with the good job or furious with me about work that was not performed by anyone representing C & S Locksmith Services.

I continuously advise customers to ask for some sort of identification - or at the least a

Interesting Encounter

Posted on July 4, 2019 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (1)

I had a pretty interesting encounter with a customer this morning:

The gentleman called me seeking assistance with a replacement vehicle key to which I was able to assist him with. Upon arrival at his location - the gentleman was screaming and ranting at the top of his lungs on the telephone and begging whomever was on the other end to refrain from calling him anymore. Apparently, before he called me - he called someone else - MINUTE KEY LOCKSMITH SERVICES are the folks he stated that...

Beware of Bait and Switch Tactics

Posted on June 10, 2019 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Scammers, Fake Locksmiths, or Illegitimate Locksmiths (whichever you choose to call them) constantly us Bait and Switch tactics on consumers who find themselves in dire situations.
