Fraud: Regional Offices
The Fraud Division has established a method for consumers to report suspected insurance fraud. It is important to know that notification of insurance fraud may be made anonymously. You may contact any of the Fraud Division Regional Offices directly responsible for your county. Other types of complaints may be directed to the department's Consumer Services Division using the Consumer Request for Assistance Form. For further information about the Fraud Division and its programs, go to the Fraud Division home page. The Insurance Code states that no insurer, or the employees or agents of any insurer, shall be subject to civil liability for libel, slander or any other relevant cause of action by virtue of providing information concerning a Suspected Fraudulent Claim to law enforcement, including the California Department of Insurance, Fraud Division.

The Fraud Division is here to help you if you need more information or assistance with fraud related matters. To contact your nearest Fraud Division Regional Office, select the regional office or select the appropriate county on the map.
