Locksmith scams are no laughing matter, and unfortunately there are a number of Portland locksmith companies who have been found to be illegally employing unlicensed workers. You may have even seen news coverage about locksmith scams, including from the Oregon Department of Justice, KGW8, and KATU2. If you haven't heard of locksmith scams before, the bottom line is that companies often hire workers who are not licensed, and sometimes the companies themselves are not licensed by the Construction Contractors Board. They then try to intimidate customers into paying outrageous prices while illegally completing the work.

So how do you avoid Portland locksmith scams? First of all, you can check with the Oregon CCB to see if the company you are ordering is licensed and bonded. You can either search by company name or CCB number - so for example our company can be found under "24 Hour Lock and Key" or our CCB number, which is 219787. 

You should also ask for the specific company name when calling a company. For example, our receptionist answers the phone saying, "thank you for calling 24 Hour Lock and Key." If you call a company that answers by saying "locksmith service," rather than a specific name, it could be a sign of a scam.

All locksmiths in the State of Oregon are required to be licensed. You can view our CCB license and the emergency locksmiths who are licensed to work for us on the CCB website, and each locksmith should have their license with them when arriving to your location. Locksmith vehicles should also be marked, as you can see in photos of our vehicles on this page. 

Our locksmiths will always give you a final quote written on a receipt before beginning any project. We know you value honesty and professionalism-- and so do we - if you have any questions about a project or want a quote before deciding, just give us a call and we are happy to help!
