Charles-Vincent Chevalier did business with Serrurier 24/7 after clicking on a sponsored link in Google.
The 24/7 Locksmith employee does not have the spare parts and must go get them. When he returns, he is no longer alone. An individual accompanies him.
While the men begin work, Mr. Chevalier receives his invoice by email. He has a shocker: The price of the handle has doubled, and the total amount is $971.54. I am scandalized. It doesn't make sense.
To discuss the price, he must call the locksmith again, he is told. The person on the phone doesn't want to hear anything. The two technicians finish the work, then… wait. The men refused to leave until I paid. Me, I'm all alone. How am I going to interact with two men who have the same build as me? It's going to be difficult if the situation escalates.
Only payment method available: Interac. It will therefore be impossible to cancel the transaction. He pays. Interac indicates that the payment was collected by a certain Julie Lévesque.
