Laurent Law Office, P.L., and Hegel Laurent (Plantation), for appellants. Welbaum Guernsey, and Robert A. Hingston, for appellee. Before LOGUE, HENDON and GORDO, JJ. PER CURIAM.
Affirmed. See McCormack v. Flens, 27 So. 3d 179, 181 (Fla. 2d DCA 2010) ("Under the civil theft statute, a potential plaintiff must first make a written demand for payment upon a defendant and, if the defendant complies with the demand within thirty days, the defendant is released from further liability." (citing § 772.11, Fla. Stat. (2006))); Rollins, Inc. v. Heller, 454 So. 2d 580, 585 (Fla. 3d DCA 1984) (concluding that a FDUTPA claim requires proof of actual, not consequential, damages (quoting § 501.211(2), Fla. Stat. (1981))); see also Applegate v. Barnett Bank of Tallahassee, 377 So. 2d 1150, 1152 (Fla. 1979) ("Without a record of the trial proceedings, the appellate court can not properly resolve the underlying factual issues so as to conclude that the trial court's judgment is not supported by the evidence or by an alternative theory. Without knowing the factual context, neither can an appellate court reasonably conclude that the trial judge so misconceived the law as to require reversal. The trial court should have been affirmed because the record brought forward by the appellant is inadequate to demonstrate reversible error.").
