Press Releases

As waves of heavy rain crosses the Panhandle and other parts of Florida, the Department of Financial Services reminds Floridians to remain prepared for severe weather. Floridians are encouraged to keep copies of their homeowners’ and auto insurance policies handy, and to take note of the state of Florida’s insurance consumer helpline in case of insurance-related questions. The helpline can be reached by calling 1-877-693-5236.
Next Wednesday in St. Augustine, the Department of Financial Services will co-host a community disaster preparedness workshop alongside the Office of Representative Cyndi Stevenson.
Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater today announced the recent arrest of Miami insurance agent Diomari Diaz after she allegedly stole insurance premium payments from a South Florida client and provided him with fake proof of insurance documents. She is also accused of stealing thousands in escrow funds from the Florida Trust Insurance Agency account. In total, Diaz misappropriated nearly $25,000, and insurance fraud investigators have reason to believe that additional individuals may have fallen victim to Diaz’s scams.
