Reporting Locksmith scam

Hi,

I'm here to report a locksmith scam listing in Roseville ca

THe listing info

King's Locksmith

google map link

https://www.google.com/maps/place/King's+Locksmith/@38.7326022,-121.2946236,13z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1s...

 

 

There used to be a business with that name till the department of consumer affair has cancelled the lic. which i have included a link to view the lic. The listing went down as a "permanently closed" listing for a while. Last month, i saw the listing is activated again.

Here is the link to check on the lic

https://search.dca.ca.gov/details/1241/LCO/5610/6e2f562c055717a0a478010e1d9d35ac

 

If you check the website on the listing you will find it linked to http://kingslocksmith.org/

The website has nothing to do with the listing. The website is for another locksmith but in a completely different area.

I have tired to flag it as a spam but it's been a month and the review still under review.

You effort to clean scammer is much appreciated.

Thank you

Phone is a Google Voice that does not answer. Phone # on facebook page is out of service. Address on webpage is in NY while listing is in CA. I suggested it is permanently closed.

Hey Mohammed,

 

I'll ask Google to take a look at this for you.  Usually it takes 1-2 weeks for me to hear back but I will post back on this thread when I hear.

This crazy!! The listing was taken down for 4 days. However, today the listing is back up!!!!!! How can they do that!!!!! 

They changed the website and put a dummy site. The licensing still not valid! This is scam!!
