We received one recent call from a consumer that paid $1200 for a house rekey that should have cost no more than $200. By making a wealth of information available to the public, including how homeowners can prevent being taken advantage of, far fewer customers will be conned by these deceptive companies.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 15, 2009
ACME Locksmith, the Top-Rated Phoenix Valley Lock and Security Company, has launched an online Knowledge Center to help protect consumers against locksmith fraud on its website http://www.AcmeLocksmith.com. With recent BBB and FTC warnings against fraudulent locksmith activity, ACME Locksmith has made information and resources readily available so homeowners and businesses can protect themselves from price gouging and other deceptive locksmith practices.
"Unfortunately, there are a group of companies operating in Phoenix that make their money by taking advantage of homeowners," said Robert Vallelunga, Owner of ACME Locksmith. " We received one recent call from a consumer that paid $1200 for a house rekey that should have cost no more than $200. By making a wealth of information available to the public, including how homeowners can prevent being taken advantage of, far fewer customers will be conned by these deceptive companies."
After receiving many calls from consumers that had been taken advantage of, ACME realized there was a need for a single resource Phoenix residents could go to and trust for information. Using its own research and various online resources, ACME created and aggregated information into its Knowledge Center to assist those looking to hire a lock and security company. Information available within ACME's Knowledge Center includes the original warnings by various agencies, links to news reports on the topic, articles on how the fraudulent companies lure you in, and tips to prevent it from happening to you.
"Home owners today need the best information available to make knowledgeable decisions about their home's security and who they hire to implement that security," said Robert Vallelunga. "The ACME Locksmith Knowledge Center provides them with that information."
