The “locksmith scammer” is back. These types of scams seem to resurface and come in waves, I guess after folks forget about ’em. Seems the next wave is hitting.

“Dear PoPville,

Seems like the same guy is hanging around 11th NW/Park Rd NW (Around Red Rocks Pizza). Wearing a black jacket with wings on the front and a Vietnam Veterans baseball cap. Knocked on the door and used the same excuse that he was locked out of his house. He had a wad of cash in his hand and was asking for another 40 bucks.”
