For Immediate Release

Matt Mavrogeorge, Assistant Attorney General
Attorney General Michael Delaney advises New Hampshire residents to use caution when making campaign contributions over the phone. The Attorney General's Office has received information that individuals have been soliciting money from New Hampshire residents through phone calls by falsely claiming that they represent legitimate political campaigns.
Attorney General Delaney urges New Hampshire citizens to verify the legitimacy of any telephone solicitation before making a contribution, especially if paying by credit card. Individuals who want to make a contribution to a political campaign should consider doing so through a campaign's official website or by calling the campaign's official phone line.
Anyone who has concerns about whether a campaign contribution made during this election cycle went to the intended political campaign should contact the campaign's headquarters.
Reports of non-receipt of campaign contributions should be made by placing a toll free call to the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office's Election Hotline at 1-866-868-3703 or 1-866-VOTER03.
