Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill
I locked myself out of my running car one evening after work. I googled "locksmith" and called the first # that came up. They told me on the phone they charged $54. for the call, and then additional depending on what had to be done. After waiting about 1 hour (they said they would be there in 15-20 min) the came & told me they would charge $350 (PLUS THE ORIGINAL $54) to open my car. Thinking this figure was WAY out of line, but not knowing what the going rate was (and I was tired, it was during an ice storm, etc.) I agreed. I found out the next day that other locksmiths provide the same service for $75.00 INCLUDING the call). Since I agreed to pay the $404 (they actually charged me $406) I paid since I like to be a person of my word. But others should be warned. They are called SQ Locksmiths and their phone # is 773-437-6672/ Now, when I try to google them, they name doesn’t come up. Curious?
