Town of Palm Beach News Release -- The aftermath of a storm like Irma can bring out the best in disaster-affected communities, but such events can also attract opportunists, con artists and unlicensed Public Adjusters.  

You should be suspicious if a contractor demands cash or full payment up front for repair work, has no physical address or identification, asks you to sign something you have not  had time to review or wants your personal financial information to start the repair or lending process. 

To report scams or suspicious contractors, please call the Department of Financial Services/Division of Investigative Forensic Services
