Corporate Fraud Section

The Attorney General's Corporate Fraud Section investigates and prosecutes cases involving California's Energy Crisis, securities and commodities fraud, the underground economy, and fraud and other financial wrongdoing perpetrated against the state. The Section brings complex prosecutions under a wide range of statutes, including the Unfair Competition Law, the California False Claims Act, and the Corporate Securities and Commodities Laws. The Section regularly investigates and prosecutes cases in cooperation with federal, sister state, and local government agencies and prosecutors.

The Corporate Fraud Section coordinates its efforts with other sections of the Attorney General's Office, including those responsible for Consumer Protection, Antitrust & Business Competition, the supervision of Charities, and the prevention of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse.
