Floridians,CFO and first responder at 911 remembrance event

Just a few weeks ago, we narrowly missed a direct hit from a very powerful storm in Hurricane Dorian. Unfortunately, our neighbors in the Bahamas suffered severe devastation and I encourage all Floridians to support relief efforts through Volunteer Florida. As you read this today, there is another tropical disturbance we’re monitoring in the Caribbean. This should serve as a reminder to Floridians that we are at the peak of hurricane season and must continue to prepare now for the threat of a major storm.

This week, I warned Floridians of a recent report of dozens of Tampa job seekers deceived in a LinkedIn and Indeed job scam. Floridians must be on alert for employment scams intended to steal your personal and financial information. Scam artists are working every day to develop creative ways to defraud the citizens of Florida. Never give your personal information over the phone and if you're working with a job placement service, make sure to get details in writing.

I was also honored and humbled to join first responders this week in remembrance of the lives lost on September 11, 2001. Thousands of Americans tragically died that day and our brave first responders rushed towards danger to save lives. They are real-life super heroes and I cannot thank them enough for the sacrifices they make to serve our communities.

As we work to move Florida forward, I want to keep you informed on the latest news and updates from my office. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and visit MyFloridaCFO.com for insight into our latest initiatives.


Sincerely,
