Most of us feel secure in our homes, but there are two scams threatening that safety by playing on fears and targeting your money.

Locksmith problems

We’re hearing about rogue locksmiths who show up, don’t do the work correctly, and demand a large payment.

Gail says it happened to her.

Her gate lock was broken and she found a locksmith online. As it turns out, they were a broker and sent a man working for a different business.

Gail says the man called it a “tough” job. Instead of trying to fix the lock, she says the man tore out the old one and broke some parts.

He replaced it, charged her $120, and then wanted more.
