The Problem:

America's most trusted websites are inundated with "scammers."


Over the past two decades fake online "locksmiths" adept at online ad placement, SEO, and fraud have taken control of Residential and Automotive Locksmithing in America. 

Over the past several years as experienced American Locksmiths have begun to retire from trade at an accelerated rate, these unqualified "locksmiths" are gaining commercial marketshare.

There is a high probability that commercial properties under your management are currently not up to code as a result of locking or door hardware installed at some point by fraudulent “locksmiths.”


The Risk(s):

There are a number of problems with hiring scammers / unqualified locksmiths:


1. In some states it's illegal to hire unlicensed locksmiths and doing so could result in fines and penalties for your organization.

2. Proficient Commercial Locksmiths can identify and make recommendations to correct code compliance issues.

Unqualified "locksmiths" cannot.

3. Unqualified "locksmiths" cut corners which can increase your liability for damages or losses arising from:

faulty / improperly installed / maintained hardware
compliance-related building closures
compliance-related litigation

4. Scammers needlessly destroy or replace good hardware in order to sell their junk hardware for the price of Grade-1 hardware.

5. Scammers do not pay taxes and funnel their money overseas, shorting not only the hard-working ethical Locksmiths who deserve your business, but also our economy.

6. If scammers or fly by night "locksmiths" have rekeyed a lock onto your master-key system, your security could be compromised facility-wide or portfolio-wide depending on your master-key system.
