CA Corp Code § 2257 (2017)  

Every person who, without being authorized so to do, subscribes the name of another to or inserts the name of another in any prospectus, circular or other advertisement or announcement of any corporation, domestic or foreign, whether existing or intended to be formed, with intent to permit the document to be published and thereby to lead persons to believe that the person whose name is so subscribed is an officer, agent, shareholder or promoter of such corporation, when in fact no such relationship exists to the knowledge of such person, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
