25 Jan Alarm Installer Identity Theft
A recent story on CBC revealed an Alarm Installer in Alberta may have stolen IDs and credit cards from a customer’s home.
Alarm technicians and locksmiths share a lot of similar responsibilities, seeing a story like this makes me quite angry, but you can find some assurance in knowing that BC licensing procedures for locksmiths are more secure.
Locksmiths require a clean criminal record, a long survey, fingerprints on file, and a 2 year apprenticeship. BC locksmiths must carry their locksmith license, which is a government issued photo ID. You can ask to see it before any work is done, and I strongly urge you to refuse entry to anyone claiming to be a locksmith but doesn’t have a license.
