Default Locked out in Indiana??? DONT CALL THESE HUSTLERS/scammers!!!

http://locksmithsinindianapolis.com/...ked-locksmith/

So any ways....I locked my ***** keys in the car.

I then googled a lock smith place.
The website said $19 service call
---24/7---
I arranged to have a "lock smith" come out...
A white service van pulls up
2 foreign that resembled that character from the GTA -4- game...(that guy who was in the New York 1.


(don't mind the smiles this guy made a joke about me using smiles so...

Back to the story...

He greeted me like he was stoned and gay but REAL friendly... I thought we were gonna bring it in and have a man hug and kiss like some foreigners do...I was greatly mistaken and deeply sadden
His eyes had a soul full shine to them in my houses coach lights and his smiles was very inviting.

They took a look in my Z (threw the window and with his I phone led light...) hes says nice car (thanks) and what not and then proceed to pull out a bag and stick lock out kit....

flags being thrown: I ask several time if they have a lock pick.
The guy says no we use this...WTF?
Any ways I need my damn keys outta the car...so "WE" pressed on...
We get the car open after many tries, and I hand the guy a $20
(the first guy, the gay and stoned looking 1.)

Hes flag gets thrown and then the **** hits the fan...

(suck it up and keep readen...iv had a RUFF day and I have NO money and NO BEER!)

The guy says (deep accent enough the sink the Titanic..)...any ways the guys want more money. So hes like its late and the price goes up and we have gas to buy and labor, ect... Total BS...

These over sees boys don't know you cant hustle a hustler. (you know what I mean...)
any ways I go get another $20 because I could have sworn the guy said another $17 he then scribbles out on a paper:
$19 service fee
$79 job fee

me-

LMAO!!!!

More **** hits the fan. Anyways I have to give these guys a lesson on how works....
I told them I am -NOT- pay $100 fkn dollars for 2 air bags and a coated metal stick matter of fact 1 air bag, you can buy that stuff any were.
He said no you have to be licensed and were could you buy that?
I said online, ebay, any place....


(stay with me its half over and you don't have anything better to do...you know you dont.)

So were going Round and Round like the son from Ratt on the price then he say give me $50 and hes talking about its all set from the company.
I say NOOOOO...I then feeling generousness and wanting to get these guy outta here reach in my wallet...were my beer money normally is (btw im borrowing this money as I have NO money.

I pull out a $5 FTW (mad tight skills...I know right. )

$45 thats $45. The guy realizes hes not getting any Sams beer from me. (no sir...)
I keep thanking them them and telling them im not upset at them but at the company.

-I leave, tell thee fam the low down then go upstairs, then back down to see them still out their. I tell them they need to move (their in my drive way btw....yea...)

Part 1 ends

Praise the LORD!!!

Part 2:

WHY GOD WHY!?!?!
-I call "the company"


Normal stlye.

I call the company to figure out why their was some "yanking/scamming" going on. I get a hold of a "call center rep" (here it comes...)
I fill this kid in on what happened and what not, and he then gives me the fools run. wtf

Saying alot of none sense about a "certified technician" doing a diagnostic and using his years of experience on how to address the situation

(my keys are sitting in the Ignition in my 88Z mind you...no space man robots or fancy rich man 4thgens here , just good ole GM iron.

So I come back to his game with "theirs no robot saying danger to Wil Robinson." "and their no "Martians invading" (yea he was asking for it mind you...)
Its a simple job and they whipped out a lock-out bag and stick kit. (yes...they did, I know right...)

So Im going round-and-round with this guy and he keeps not letting me speak when im trying to tell him that im taken care of and that I want -THEM- to look into the matter of why (screw why, fire that 2nd guy with his $100 BS...the first guy was the muscule and didnt know a whole lot on aww forget it...)

He asked for their names and I told him that I didn't get their names on the count of the THICK accent...and proceeded to describe the gta 5 game and how they may have been from the same country and he tried to say I was racist...I said no it doesn't have anything nor does it matter to the situation on their race im just describing them.

(I know its getting long and im about to rap it up here so beer with me )

Anyways more idiotic merry-go-round antics were said and I said if you would stop talking over me and let me talk we could hang up in 2 seconds (he said we could talk till we were blue in the face mind you...)

I can tell you that im taken car of and I just wanted -THEM/you guys- to look into it. But anyways we hung up and then I finished make my sandwich that I was in the middle of making when they pulled up then I went back upstairs repeating to myself on how they were crazy, then ate said sandwich.

THEN!!!!

I proceeded and with much grace, poise and mad tight anti thirdgen hustlen skillzs....to get on Ls1tech.com.......
and type this whole shenanigan experience and to warn my fellow Indy heads.

-That about sums it up for tonight, thanks for bear-en with me on this guys

1. I don't know why you would ever call a locksmith to get into an fbody, they are easy as pie to get into.

2. No offense, but you're a cheapskate. $98 is not an unreasonable fee for a locksmith that comes out to your location and fixes your problem for you. The one time I can remember calling a locksmith I paid more than that.

I guess it would depend on what the site actually said. If they advertised that they would fix the problem for $20, then I'd agree. But the OP just said they listed the $20 as the 'service call' which means exactly that, the cost for the person servicing your problem to come to your location. If that is all they described the charge as, that's not false advertising at all. Almost all mobile services like that have a $20-$40 service call fee. A locksmith wouldn't be able to feed his family if all he charged was $20 per job. That's probably less than $15-20 per hour considering the time (even if it's close) plus the cost of transportation and materials, and he may only get a few jobs per day.

Why?

Because they charged a fairly typical rate for a locksmith?

Because they were not the same race as you?

Because you tried to have them fired for charging a typical rate for a locksmith?

How were they not legit? They did unlock your car for you didn't they? Even if you didn't pay what their charge was.

NOOO!!! They -tried- to charge me ---MORE--- THEN ---DOUBLE--- OF WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE COSTED! THE COMPANY SAID $44!!!!

AND he said with $45 in hand "...I made my money, I dont care..." (boom)

He also goes on to say some BS about how he would have to pay "the company" out of his pocket because I wount pay their *** hat price...

Some real winner here.

ok, but that's the first time you said that. All you said before was that the service call fee was advertised as $20. If the company quoted you $44 for the whole job, then you have a legit beef. But if they really quoted you $44, why do you say in your first post that you handed them a $20 and expected that to take care of it? Sorry but your story just doesn't make sense imo.

Really? I had one come out to my 92 z a while ago when there was nothing around. Cost 20 bucks. He used a wedge and coat hanger pretty much.

I'd say you got lucky. I don't see how you could run an actual business charging $20 total per service call.
