Florida Price Gouging Hotline Activated

As Hurricane Matthew continues its northwest path, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has activated the state’s price gouging hotline.

During a state of emergency, Florida law prohibits extreme price increases of essential items like food, ice, gas, hotels, water and lumber.

If you see scammers trying to take advantage of consumers through price gouging, you can call the Attorney General’s Office to make a report. The number is 1-866-9-NO-SCAM.
