Report Fraud

Consumer Fraud Reporting Portal

The California Department of Insurance has developed this online form for members of the general public and licensed California agents and brokers to report cases of suspected insurance fraud. As noted in California Insurance Code sections 1872.51 and 1879.5, no person shall be subject to civil liability for filing a good faith report of suspected insurance fraud to the Department of Insurance.

Electronic Suspected Fraudulent Claim (eFD-1) Portal

This is the Insurance Industry portal for submitting and amending Electronic Suspected Fraudulent Claims (eFD-1s). Hard copy FD-1 forms submitted by mail are no longer accepted.

Other Methods for Reporting Fraud

It is important to know that notification of insurance fraud may be made anonymously by members of the general public.

You may directly contact the Fraud Division Regional Office responsible for your county. Further information about Fraud Division office locations can be found at Fraud Division Regional Offices (
