SEC Bounty Actions Target Securities Fraud and Allow Securities Fraud Whistleblowers to Earn Large Financial Rewards (Up to 30% of Money Recovered by the SEC) for Anonymously Exposing Illegal Conduct

SEC Bounty Actions target illegal conduct in our financial markets. These whistleblower reward laws were created by the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These laws offer large bounties that can be collected by whistleblowers who have orignal information regarding signigicant illegal conduct. This conduct includes violations of the Securities Exchange Act and the Commodity Exchange Act. More specifically, these bounty actions target financial fraud, market manipulation schemes, insider trading, money laundering, corrupt practices, cryptocurrency fraud, as well as other securities fraud and commodities fraud. To pay a reward the bounty actions require fraud that results in monetary sanctions over one million dollars ($1,000,000.00).

The SEC or CFTC can award the whistleblower up to 30% of the money collected from the anonymous whistelblower's provided information. The whistleblower, however, can only expose this illegal conduct anonymously if they are represented by a lawyer licensed in the United States. This whistleblower protection is designed to protect professionals and other whistleblowers from potential retaliation. The lawyer requirement provides a safe guard as to if the whistleblower is qualified to expose the fraud and collect the reward.

By creating whistleblower bounties for investors and people with specific information of fraud, the SEC and CFTC create an economic incentive to encourge high end professionals and investors to expose significant fraud. Further, the whistleblower proctections that have also been created protect these same high end whistleblowers. The rewards combined with the protections help regulate the financial market and prevent large corporations, banks, hedge funds, brokers, and investors from committing financial fraud schemes that take billions of dollars from investors each year.

Several Types of Securities Fraud Can Be The Basis for Anonymous SEC Bounty Actions

Securities fraud, also known as stock fraud and investment fraud, is the unlawful practice of inducing investors to make investment decisions on the basis of false information, frequently resulting in losses, in violation of the securities laws.  Securities fraud whistleblower lawsuits include deceptive practices in the stock and commodity markets, and occur when investors are enticed to part with their money based on fraudulent misrepresentations. 

Securities fraud whistleblower lawsuits include outright theft from investors and misstatements on a public company's financial reports as well as a wide range of other actions, including insider trading, front running and other illegal acts on the trading floor of a stock or commodity exchange.  Evidence for a securities fraud whistleblower lawsuit may include:

  1. False or misleading information on a company's financial statement;

  2. False or misleading information on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings;

  3. Lying to corporate auditors;

  4. Insider trading;

  5. Stock manipulation schemes;

  6. Embezzlement by stockbrokers;

  7. Manipulation of a security’s price or volume;

  8. Fraudulent or unregistered offer or sale of securities, including Ponzi schemes, high yield investment programs or other investment programs;

  9. Brokerage Account and Retirement Account Fraud;

  10. False or misleading statements about a company;

  11. Failure to file required reports with the SEC;

  12. Abusive naked short selling;

  13. Theft or misappropriation of funds or securities;

  14. Fraudulent conduct or other problems associated with municipal securities transactions or public pension plans; and

  15. Bribery of foreign officials

Other forms of SEC Violations including reporting problems with a brokerage or advisory account; fraudulently preventing access to funds or securities; fraudulent order handling, trade execution, or confirmations; fraudulent fees, mark-ups or commissions; and inaccurate or misleading disclosures by financial professionals, may also lead to potential SEC bounties, if the fraudulent acts result in fines of over $1 million and are properly reported.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and SEC Whistleblower Incentive Program

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (frequently abbreviated SEC) is a federal agency which holds primary responsibility for enforcing the federal securities laws and regulating the securities industry, the nation's stock and options exchanges, and other electronic securities markets in the United States. The mission of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.

The SEC was created in 1934 and enforces the Securities Act of 1933, the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and other statutes. The SEC was created by section 4 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (now codified as 15 U.S.C. § 78d and commonly referred to as the 1934 Act).

The laws and rules that govern the securities industry in the United States derive from a simple and straightforward concept: all investors, whether large institutions or private individuals, should have access to certain basic facts about an investment prior to buying it, and so long as they hold it. To achieve this, the SEC requires public companies to disclose meaningful financial and other information to the public. This provides a common pool of knowledge for all investors to use to judge for themselves whether to buy, sell, or hold a particular security. Only through the steady flow of timely, comprehensive, and accurate information can people make sound investment decisions.

The SEC Regulates The Securities Markets in the United States

The SEC is responsible for administering eight major laws that govern the securities industry. They are: the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Credit Rating Agency Reform Act of 2006, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The enforcement authority given to the SEC by Congress allows it to bring civil enforcement actions against individuals or companies alleged to have violated securities law or committed securities fraud including committing accounting fraud, providing false information, or engaging in insider trading. 

The SEC oversees the key participants in the securities world, including securities exchanges, securities brokers and dealers, investment advisors, and mutual funds. Here the SEC is concerned primarily with promoting the disclosure of important market-related information, maintaining fair dealing, and protecting against fraud. Crucial to the SEC's effectiveness in each of these areas is its enforcement authority. Each year the SEC brings hundreds of civil enforcement actions against individuals and companies for violation of the securities laws. Typical infractions include insider trading, accounting fraud, and providing false or misleading information about securities and the companies that issue them.

The SEC Protects Investors and Maintains the Integrity of Financial Markets

One of the major sources of information on which the SEC relies to bring enforcement action is investors themselves — another reason that educated and careful investors are so critical to the functioning of efficient markets. To help support investor education, the SEC offers the public a wealth of educational information on this Internet website, which also includes the EDGAR database of disclosure documents that public companies are required to file with the Commission. Though it is the primary overseer and regulator of the U.S. securities markets, the SEC works closely with many other institutions, including Congress, other federal departments and agencies, the self-regulatory organizations (e.g. the stock exchanges), state securities regulators, and various private sector organizations. In particular, the Chairman of the SEC, together with the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, serves as a member of the President's Working Group on Financial Markets.

SEC Bounty Actions Must Be Brought Voluntarily and Be Based on Original Information

These SEC bounty claims must be brought voluntarily under the SEC Bounty Programs by one or more individuals.  The whistleblower or whistleblowers must be a natural person or natural persons, companies or other entity is not eligible to be financial fraud bounty whistleblowers.  Successful SEC violation bounty whistleblowers and financial fraud whistleblowers can collect financial rewards for whistleblower bounty actions that result in the imposition of monetary sanctions of greater than $1 million dollars.  This new financial fraud SEC bounty program is called the "Securities Whistleblower Incentives and Protection". 

Through SEC Whistleblower Bounty Actions the SEC awards between ten percent and thirty percent of the money collected to a qualified whistleblower who voluntarily provides the SEC with original information about a violation of the securities laws that leads to a successful enforcement of an action brought by the SEC that results in monetary sanctions exceeding $1,000,000.00.  

So long as the financial fraud whistleblower or financial fraud whistleblowers base their claims on "original information", any person (not just an employee or insider) may file a SEC financial fraud bounty claim.  Further, if the financial fraud whistleblower is represented by an attorney, the whistleblower may file the financial fraud bounty claim anonymously.
