I googled a company to come out and make a duplicate of my 2016 Range Rover key and “Car Key Replacement” came up as #2 on Google’s certified list. Two Israeli men showed up, “programmed my new key” for an hour and tried to get me to pay for a key that never fully worked. After 3 different attempts for them to “fix it” and the key still not working I asked them to leave. They wouldn’t. I asked 3 more times and threatened to call the cops (which I later did). They finally agreed to leave but said they needed to de-programs the key. I let them, but as they were driving off I realized they also deprogrammed my original key, and effectively sabotaged my vehicle, rendering it useless. I’m currently waiting on AAA to tow it to get fixed now. These scam artists have cost me time, money and considerable aggravation. Please stop them from doing this to other people.
