This locksmith threatened my family and myself several times today with multiple vulgarities. And threatened me by telling me to make sure my doors were locked well.
My kitchen door was closed and stuck I had slowly stripped the locks with my handy tools and my friend came over to help.
Just when I googled a locksmith, and called and asked how much it would cost for him to come over and unlock the door he asked me to send him my address. So I sent him my address and within 1 minute my friend suddenly popped open the door.
So I immediately SMS the locksmith within 3 mins from my last message to ask him to come and he called me back saying that his man was on the way.
I felt bad and asked how much he wants to charge me for the few mins travel and then he said just wait there my man is on the way. So I panicked and got scared.. I told him your guy doesn’t have to come anymore its only been less than 5 mins since I called you I’m sure he isn’t even on the way or even if he is not that far a distance (it was actually only 3mins) so he doesn’t have to come. He started getting angry, talking loudly and then hung up.
Called me back again and hurled vulgarities at me saying I’m making fun of locksmiths and that I kept calling him before and wasting his time. – I’ve never used a locksmith before.
I was getting more afraid but I did not react, I was just trying to resolve the issue. He eventually demanded that I pay the full amount and that he would send someone down now to take the money from me or else.
It was then that I decided to say no. I wasn’t going to give in to his threat. He then said a string of colourful hokkien vulgarities and threatened me and said he knows my home address and I should watch out. He also said I should make sure all my doors are locked tonight and menacingly asked me to sleep well and if I dared to call the police to go ahead. He kept repeating that he knows where I lived.
I did exactly what he said to do. I made a courtesy call to the nearby police post so if he does anything I have it on record. I am not afraid of petty crime he may be bored enough to attempt. Just don’t like the fact that he threatened me because I’m a female and I sound vulnerable on the phone… I do have a sweet voice lol.
Use this locksmith at your own risk. And NEVER give out your home address, if necessary give out a nearby public address and pick the locksmith up so if something goes wrong you are safe.
Always get a friend to recommend to you someone they know. It will be the best case. Just wanted to share my experience so you don’t fall for this trap.
