I'll call bullshit here.  I was an apprentice locksmith for 2 years.  You can indeed cut medico keys, but you need a special machine and the blanks are dang expensive as well.  It's an expensive rig to set up, so it's more likely that you won't be able to find a locksmith that could do it, but it definately can be done.
