Locksmith/Plumber Services

How the scam works:

(with video below) You are in need of a locksmith or plumber and find an ad for a technician advertising services for “only $25”. You hire them, but at the end of the service you're charged $75. When you try to argue they say the $25 is just the callout charge and doesn’t include the labor. Sometimes they don't even have proper licenses.
