Unlicensed and untrained locksmiths are a huge problem in the state of Oklahoma.

Officials say some metro companies are accused of over charging, even damaging customer's vehicles.

Last year state investigations issued 76 citations against companies who weren't treating their customers fairly.

After customer complaints more than fifty metro companies, the Department of Labor is cracking down on unlicensed locksmiths.

There are things investigators want consumers to remember:

First get the individual license number.

You should see it on everything that carries the company's name.

Those state issued digits guarantee the locksmith passed a background check and has the necessary credentials.

Don't do any business with a locksmith unwilling to give you that number.
