New wrinkle in national locksmith scam

In a new twist to the ongoing national locksmith scam, scammers are now using upscale residential addresses that do not belong to them in an attempt to appear local in the community. They have been using fictitious address for years, but until now they have been commercial addresses like coffee shops, restaurants, and sometimes even local locksmiths. This is a new low for these slime balls, and their lack of ethics is astounding. How long before an innocent homeowner has his property vandalized or worse in retaliation from someone who was ruthlessly ripped of by a phony locksmith?
