State Attorney Amira Fox of the 20th Judicial Circuit has created a contractor/construction fraud task force in Charlotte County to ensure effective investigations and successful prosecutions of construction fraud.

Construction is a $50 billion industry in Florida and growing. According to a recent survey, nearly 36% of all consumers indicated that contractor fraud is their primary concern with construction, according to a statement from the attorney’s office.

“As your State Attorney, I want to protect innocent consumers from fraudulent activity as well as protect those businesses which follow the law. I am proud to announce the creation of the State Attorney’s Office Contractor/Construction Fraud Task Force. This task force will assess issues, share information, and identify best practices with law enforcement agencies, elected officials, and construction professionals circuit-wide to ensure effective investigations and successful prosecutions of construction fraud,” stated State Attorney Fox.
