Click here now.. Kay from the 512 675 0155 said locksmith service call is $10 plus unlocking the door starts @$25. I agreed for the appt.

My bedroom interior door was locked and we couldn't unlock it. Mike Cohen arrived. Spent a few moments with the door. Said it was a k1 lock(he speaks in a foreign middle eastern accent). He said prices begin @$269 I said that was too much.

Then he started texting someone and said $175. I said no its too much $100 is as high. Then we agreed on $125 because it was urgent that my children get in their bedroom. 

Afterwards, I felt scammed and called Cothrons and the Austin Key Guy to see if this type of bartering service is legal. They advised me that I was scammed and should contact BB and the DPS Private Security Bureau. I don't have Mike's security locksmith #. He didn't show it NOR is it listed on this invoice.

GO TO LOCAL AUSTIN LOCKSMITHS ONLY. $75 is the hightest to unlock an interior standard key lock that only cost $10. I was RIPPED OFF and intimidated.
