    FLORIDA - As we begin a new Atlantic hurricane season in Florida, a new app has launched to help you from getting ripped off before or after a storm.

    Florida Attorney Ashley Moody says it’s called NO SCAM and its designed to help people report possible price gouging during a state of emergency in real-time.

    NO SCAM is free, and you can download it to your Apple or Android device by searching NO SCAM in the app store or Google Play.

    The state says the app allows you to send pictures of prices, keep receipts, write a report, report prices on similar products in the same area and send supporting information straight to the Attorney General’s Office.

    Moody says she hope the app will keep people from ripping off others.

    “The stress caused by an approaching storm and its disruptive, and sometimes, devastating aftermath should not be further intensified by price gouging.” Moody says.
