Where's The Beef in Reporting the Truth About Locksmith Scammers? Nebraskan News Reporter Chad Silber is #1
The Society of Professional Locksmiths appreciates News Reporter Chad Silber for being the ONLY news reporter in the United States that has reported accurately about what is known as "locksmith scammers."
This young cub, nailed his recent news report by clearly identifying that locksmiths are not engaged in scamming the consumers. His news headline reads - "Criminals Acting as Locksmiths to Steal from Victims." There was no fluff reporting or blatant activist style reporting which as we have seen elsewhere.
The SOPL has for a very long time advocated for the hardworking locksmiths while other locksmith associations subversively supported and aided in the misinformation in order to force failed and unwanted licensing on the industry in order to restrain trade and eliminate competition.
Nebraska is characterized as a major producer of beef, and pork, and Chad certainly delivered that beef! The only pork I saw was the subliminal reference of showing the Yellow Page disclaimer notice 2 times that reads - "State or local law may require locksmiths to be licensed. If you have any questions regarding licensure, please contact your locksmith licensing authority." Since there is no such thing in Nebraska why show it unless it is yet another attempt to make a false impression? I think Nebraskan's can see through the false sense of security offered by licensing.
Either way it appears that maybe the news media is starting to hear the voice of the SOPL, and realizing the fact that many of them have been misled by those with a licensing agenda. This agenda has been proven to be a con job, flawed and a failure that has only harmed the industry. The locksmith industry does not want it, but a minority group with special interests does and falsely claim it will stop those posing as locksmith. It doesn't and has not.

So for now, and hopefully in the future Chad Silber of Channel 10/11 - KOLN-TV Lincoln, Nebraska will continue to deliver the beef. I felt the following video was appropriate!
