TAMPA, Fla. — Attorney General Ashley Moody on Monday announced the creation of a webpage full of tips and resources to help Floridians avoid scams.

FLORIDA NEWS | The latest headlines from Florida

“Scammers are working around the clock to steal your hard-earned money, so we must work just as hard to prevent fraud and protect Floridians. But we can’t win this fight alone," Moody said. "Often the best way to stop a scam is to make sure people have the tools to avoid falling victim. That is why I am launching our new Consumer Alert webpage—so Floridians can learn about the latest scams conveniently, in one location. Please remember, educating yourself about the latest scams and taking steps to avoid falling victim will help us build a stronger, safer Florida.”
