Real Estate Fraud Unit

The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office serves as a central reporting, investigative, and prosecution agency for real estate fraud in San Joaquin County. Our personnel can assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about your property and real estate fraud.

In order to investigate your complaint properly, we will need the names, addresses and phone numbers of all persons involved in the suspected fraud (i.e. suspect(s), reporting party/victim). We also need a summary of facts, including but not limited to the following:

  • A chronology of the events that took place
  • What you were told and by whom
  • What you were told that you later learned was false

If you have reported this suspected fraud to any other agency for investigation, please include the name, address and telephone number of the agency and person contacted.

It is imperative that you be as specific as possible with all the information requested. Once we have received and reviewed your complaint of suspected fraud, you will be contacted by our office to discuss the issues at hand. At that time, you may be required to supply copies of all documents you have in support of your complaint.
