Checking if locksmith is really a Aloa member

Is it possible to verify if someone is really an Aloa member or just copying the logo on to their site.

They have a large collection of pirated books listed right above the Aloa logo as training resources.

I assume Aloa would not like that.

Check here. If they do not pop up send ALOA an email to let them know. http://www.aloa.org/membership/aloa-member-directory.html

Also when advertising ALOA membership they have to display a membership number.

A locksmith being an ALOA member certainly does not guarantee they are a good locksmith or they have good ethics.

It's not your Member Number, it's a different "Logo Licensing Number" that is assigned when you join. Even if they are legitimate members, they can be cited (or even sued) for not properly displaying the logo with license.

You could also contact the authors of the books in question, as I imagine they will fiercely protect their copyright.
