FULL TRANSCRIPT BELOW

Hey, this is CFO Jimmy Patronis.

As you’re putting together the pieces from Hurricane Ian, understand there’s good actors out there and there’s bad actors out there.

The bad actors will be high pressure salesmen going door to door trying to coerce you to sign documents.

Never sign anything.

If you’ve been pressured to something under duress, in most cases you have 10 days to cancel it.

Do not allow anybody to get between you and your insurance claim.

Your first phone call should be to your insurance agent, your insurance carrier, or to my office at 1-877-MY-FL-CFO.

We will protect you and ensure you get every dollar that you’re entitled to.

Stay safe.
