Press Releases

Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement on Governor Rick Scott’s announcement that since December 2010 state debt has been paid down by more than $10 billion.
Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis’ office charged Denise Williams with three counts of insurance fraud greater than $100,000, all first-degree felonies. In May, CFO Patronis directed his Division of Investigative and Forensic Services to investigate life insurance fraud relating to Mike Williams’ disappearance nearly two decades ago.
Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis warns Floridians of a telemarketing scam targeting seniors and most often Florida Blue customers. Blue Cross Blue Shield nationally has received complaints from members about scammer calls involving “experimental pain relief cream” to replace current pain medication. Some of these callers aim to steal identities while others may attempt to fraudulently charge an insurer, resulting in paying out-of-pocket expenses or receiving a bogus product.
