Special Alert to Treasurers
Treasurers of campaigns‚ political committees‚ continuing political committees and political party committees should be on the look–out for emails requesting to send funds. They may appear to be sent from individuals within your organization‚ however‚ could be fraudulent. ELEC has been informed of recent attempts to embezzle funds from treasurers sent through emails. Before authorizing transfers of funds be sure to check the origin of the request and confirm with authorized representatives within your particular organization. If you receive a request you believe is fraudulent you should immediately contact your local prosecutor’s office.
