Fundraising and Fraud

As we move into campaign season,
it is normal for voters to receive requests for donations from federal, state
and local candidates, political parties and other worthy causes.


Unfortunately, scams from
illegitimate political entities targeting voters’ money or sensitive data may
be on the rise as well.


If you are solicited and suspect
fraud, please contact the Secretary of State’s Fraud Investigations Unit at
(916) 657-2177 or
