Best way to report fraud after Hurricane Irma


Date: September 15, 2017
Source: ABC 25 WPBF News


The State of Florida is warning people about Hurricane Irma scams.

The Division of Investigative and Forensic Services says be suspicious if a contractor demands cash or full payment, has no physical address or I.D., asks you to sign something you haven't reviewed and wants financial information to start the repair or lending process.

To report scams or suspicious activity call:

Fraud Tip Hotline: 1-800-378-0445

Consumer Helpline: 1-877-693-5236

Public Assistance Fraud Hotline: 1-866-762-2237
