PHOENIX - Getting locked out of your home or car can be a horrible feeling and even though some ads promise low prices, locksmiths can cost a lot of money._____________________________________________________________________________________
That's what the ABC15 Investigators found recently.
We gathered low price ads found on the internet, then we purposely locked our keys in a van and called those businesses out.
Run Local Locksmith offers a $15 service ad.
But when the worker got to our van, he says it would cost $135 total.
He says the $15 was just for the service call. The other $120 was for doing the work.
Altic Lock Service advises that you find a legitimate locksmith before you find yourself stranded. The Society of Professional Locksmiths has a list of reputable businesses across the country.
