Phone numbers to report scams and gouging in Florida

In the aftermath of hurricane Charley, the St. Petersburg Times on 17 August 2004 published a list of numbers to call:

  • Florida Attorney General’s office price gouging hotline: (800) 646-0444
  • Florida Department of Agriculture and consumer services: (800) 435-7352
  • Construction Industry Licensing Board: (904) 727-6530

While in 1992 in the wake of hurricane Andrew, it took two weeks to top 1,000 complaints, it took only days for this amount to amass after hurricane Charley in 2004.
