TRACKING IRMA: Florida Attorney General activates Price Gouging Hotline

As Hurricane Irma’s projected track and growing strength spurred runs on water and long gas lines around St. Johns County and other parts of Florida this week, the Florida Attorney General’s office activated the Price Gouging Hotline to make sure businesses aren’t taking advantage of customers

Consumers who see massive price hikes in food, water, hotels, ice, gasoline, lumber and equipment for hurricane preparation compared to last week can call 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226) to report the business.
