One doesn't really think of getting ripped off by locksmith do they? After all, it's not every day that one needs a locksmith, but when you do, it can be a dire emergency making you very vulnerable and that's when the scammers will strike. Here's how to avoid falling prey to them.

Warnings are being issued about rogue locksmiths who are targeting people with rip-off prices, poor workmanship and intimidation.

Handyman Wayne Perrey advises you on how to protect yourself from falling victim - including why to always check the accredited register before calling, and why to never post on social media if you're looking for one.

That's really scary. We've used locksmiths to re-key our locks, but scary to think about being ripped off.

We've had to remake our locks multiple times, and the price alone of getting a new one is too high, waaay too high.
