MIAMI – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is sending a clear message to tow-truck operators who may be price gouging during the state of emergency in Broward County.
Moody’s message through social media read:
“We are hearing that tow truck drivers in areas under the emergency declaration may be price gouging. I want to remind people that price gouging during a state of emergency is unlawful, and I have already activated our hotline to receive reports of unconscionable price increases. “
Her office has set up a price-gouging hotline.
If you feel like you have been charged way too much to get your vehicle out of a flooded situation, you are urged to call the toll-free number: (866) 966-7226.
