  • knowingly implying the solicited funds are being used for a different purpose than they are in reality
  • indicating the principal is a member of a public safety entity if he/she not
  • knowingly filing false or misleading information in required documentation from the Secretary of State
  • indicating that contributors to the solicitation funds will receive preferential treatment from the public safety entity
