Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office
price gouging hotline in full operation
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has announced that her Price Gouging Hotline is operational and her team of investigators is fully prepared to respond to any and all complaints of price gouging given the state of emergency declared by Governor Ron DeSantis.
“Now that the Governor has declared a state of emergency, price gouging is a criminal offense. We are joining efforts with the Miami-Dade Police Department to combat any greedy individuals and businesses that may use threatening events like the cyberattack on the fuel pipeline to take advantage of our community’s fundamental needs by unnecessarily hiking prices to outrageous levels,” commented State Attorney Fernandez Rundle. «Greedy actions will not be tolerated before, during, or after any event wherein a state of emergency has been declared.”
To report any suspicion of price gouging, and in order to accommodate as many residents as possible, we have set up an email mailbox where complaints about possible price gouging may be sent. The email address is Hotline@miamisao.com Complainants will receive an automatic reply that the information submitted will be reviewed.
Complaints should include the business name, physical address, item(s) believed to be price-gouged with photos and receipt(s) and contact information for our staff to communicate with the complainant. Residents may also call the State Attorney’s Hotline at 305-547-3300.
