Getting into filing cabinets

If one has filing cabinets that one wants to get into (e.g., metal ones, locked), how would one go about it? (Presume no personal lockpicking skills to speak of for our spunky intrepid frustrated heroine.) Could one bluff the cabinet maker with a serial number of the lock or something? Or is it going to require a locksmith/lock-picker? (Or, of course, the ever-popular destructive methods... Though that does rather leave the impression that someone's been there...)

EDIT: I love you all. Mmm, things to try. (Including, very likely, going to Staples and seeing if I can examine one of the things from the bottom and all sides...) Thank you!
