|9/21/2010||On Tuesday (9/21/2010) LOCKSMITH CHARLEY filed suit against 11 companies of "locksmith scammers", several telephone companies supporting their activities, Google, Yahoo, and the Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard. A hearing has been set for October 4th at 9:30AM. Judge Mangum has ordered the defendants to appear and show good cause why he should not issue a preliminary injunction to shut off at least 450 telephone numbers belonging to the 11 different companies. Consumers are urged to visit www.TheLocksmithPolice.com to learn more about the nationwide epidemic of locksmith scammers. Media and legal inquiries are invited to call 800-313-5397.|
|6/28/2012||On June 28, 2010, after 3 more hearings on my Order to Show Cause
(notably CincoDeMayo and "D-DAY), Judge
Mangum has ruled in this matter and has ordered a preliminary injunction
prohibiting the appearing defendants (ATLAS, MILLER, MILLENNIUM, COMPLETE, and
TRUST) from using any false addresses, that is to say, an address where they do
not have a physical presence. The entire ruling may be read at:
If you are a consumer or a locksmith that has been following this issue you know what a huge victory this is!
|11/21/2012||On November 21, 2012 the Arizona Court of Appeals heard oral arguments based on the appeal of several of the defendants of the preliminary injunction issued by the Superior Court.|
|1/31/2013||In November 2012 DEX delivered an East Valley Yellow Page
directory to my residence. Under Locks & Locksmiths there were about
237 one line listings. Over 200 of those listings specified
addresses that either (a) didn't exist or (b) existed but
belonged to someone else, i.e. no locksmith there.
The overwhelming majority of the telephone numbers involved were facilitated by MCI and their resellers. In their letter dated 1/31/2013 MCI informed the FCC that due to my complaint MCI and/or their resellers disconnected "more than 200" telephone numbers of locksmith scammers in the Phoenix market.
The 200+ disconnected telephone numbers represent over 80% of the 237 one-line locksmith listings in the book we analyzed.
3 month anniversary of AZ Court of Appeals
hearing - no results. 2/28/2013 will represent 8 months of
inactivity since our injunction was issued.
