Scam Description

The business shows up on a Google search as an emergency mobile locksmith. Called and got an answer, Thomas the owner says they can do the job and they need the payment up front before sending a technician. They give the option of paying with a card over the phone or using Venmo. I transferred the money over Venmo as I was uncomfortable giving my card information over the phone. After the money was sent I tried to get an update and was ignored. There are reviews online of people with a similar experience.
