Around the clock Locksmith 443-534-9604 My 74year old father was ripped off for $1095.00 on 1/12/2011 by this man named "John" who said he was the owner of said company.My father locked his keys in his truck while it was running he called 411 for pop a lock # instead he was connected to this company.Upon calling he asked a price but instead the man replied he could be there in 30min or less (we have used pop a lock for years and it has never been over $100.00 bucks)

It took the man less than two minutes to get my dads keys out he then put my dads keys in his work van and locked it.He than hands my dad a estimate and a sales receipt charging him $995.00!! My father said this must be some kind of mistake did you mean $95.00? The weather is 25degrees my dad is freezing and crying he tells him he doesn't have $995.00 the man replys give me your credit card than my dad informs him he does not own a credit card.

Very upset and in a panic my dad hands the man $1095.00 which he saved up for 6 months he had appointment to have his truck fixed thats the only reason he had the cash on him the man tells my father not to worry because my dads insurance company would give him his money back which was yet another lie! This man needs to be punished please beware of this company Around the Clock Locksmith po box 1648 Pasadena Md 21123 phone # 443-534-9604 it could be you or one of your loved ones please inform everyone you know!
