1. Chicago Locksmiths

2. 2048 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

3. (312) 878-2715

4. https://plus.google.com/+ChicagoLocksmithsNetLocksmithCompany

 

Company is using two different names and saying they have over 200 yelp reviews and over 700 google reviews that point to one company. Are they "Chicago Locksmiths" or are the "Chicago Car Keys"? They even have two separate logos. They are unfairly manipulating link juice.

Also on their gmail page they tout their main website www.ChicagoLocksmiths.net

While I can see that it does seem to be really unusual for that many reviews for one business ( I did look through them) and some of the wording to be very similar - looks like you have posted the same question in multiple forums. If you want help I would suggest you delete all but one post about your specific complaint. A "Top Contributor" will probably not attempt to wade in on your issue if they feel like you have spammed multiple boards with the same issue / question. You can also message Google directly at Twitter - https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/News-Updates/Follow-us-on-Twitter/m-p/560525/highlight/tru...

Im not saying that you don't have a valid question - I'm saying if you flood the boards with the same question you are unlikely to get a response.
