CONSUMER ALERT: Office Of Insurance Regulation Email Scam Targeting Floridians
The Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) and the Department of Financial Services (DFS) have been made aware of a scam involving the unauthorized use of Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier’s name and position. A fraudulent email, appearing to be sent from OIR Commissioner Altmaier, has been sent to consumers, notifying that all of the recipient’s insurance policies have been cancelled. OIR does not send notices of cancellation and those who receive this email should disregard the information. Consumers should not click on any links contained with the email message, and should immediately delete the email.

The Department of Financial Services is tasked by statute to provide a way for state agencies to report their contracts to the public via FACTS. State contracts can be searched by agency name, dollar value, vendor name, or commodity/service type.
