The Department of Criminal Justice Services urges citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be aware that unscrupulous nationwide locksmith businesses and individuals have recently been found to be operating in Virginia and other states. While legitimate locksmith businesses and individuals take great pride in their service and business practices, a persistent pattern of violations by some nationwide businesses has emerged and violations have been reported across the country.

In Virginia, the Department of Criminal Justice Services, Division of Regulatory Affairs has investigated several of these businesses and individuals and taken action against those found to be in violation of the law or regulations governing locksmiths.

The investigations revealed that there are several locksmith businesses and individuals using fictitious names and addresses, and making other misrepresentations. Citizens should be aware of deceptive tactics used by these companies such as quoting one price for services over the telephone but charging a higher price after providing the service. In some cases, they even insist on accompanying the customer to an ATM to withdraw cash for payment of the inflated fee.

All citizens are encouraged to protect themselves from unlicensed businesses and unregistered individuals providing locksmith services.
