SEA Violation Whistleblowers Should Expose Market Manipulations Schemes and Illegal Sales of Stocks
The SEC targets market manipulation schemes including illegal stock sales. These schemes can include international investors involved in market manipulation schemes as well as pump and dump schemes. The SEC prohibits market manipulation and recently imposed a $35 million fine on investors who secretly dumped large quantities of microcap stock. This SEC action illustrates the agency’s determination to detect fraud and protect investors. More specifically, the SEC wants to make sure more exotic and complicated ETFs are not used to manipulate the markets.
The SEC Also Encourages SEA Whistleblower to Expose Illegal Pump and Dump Schemes
The SEC also protects investors from illegal pump and dump market manipulation schemes. Further, the SEC prohibits the sale of millions of shares while a stock’s price is being artificially inflated and dumped into the market. This prohibition applies to different types of stocks including unregistered stocks and microcap stocks. Further, the SEC works to root out overseas and domestic players who use microcap markets to take advantage of U.S. investors. Evasion of Securities Registration Requirements Can Also Be The Basis of Bounty Actions The SEC also regulates securities registration requirements. Further, the SEC targets those who violate the antifraud and registration provisions of the federal securities laws and who act as unregistered broker-dealers. They also target investors engaged in other manipulative conduct. This conduct includes disguising the true sellers of securities and defrauding investors to generate illicit profits.
The SEC Regulates Private Companies Who Violate the Securities Exchange Act and Defraud Investors
SEC representatives clearly state that “being a private company comes with serious obligations to investors and the markets.” Further, the agency monitors private companies in respect to their reporting to actual and potential investors. The SEC also enforces securities and investment fraud schemes committed by individuals and private companies. These enforcement actions fine and punish private companies for disclosure violations, fraud, and other illegal conduct.
The SEC Also Regulates Private Investment Advisers and Private Equity Funds That Violate the Securities Exchange Act
The Dodd-Frank Act requires all private equity firms with more than $150 million in assets to register with the SEC in the category of “Investment Advisers.” More specifically, the SEC regulates investment advisers and private equity funds through the Advisers Act. This Act requires all non-exempt private equity fund investment advisers to register with the SEC. Further, the SEC requires these investment advisers to comply with securities laws and disclosure requirements. More specifically, the SEC requires these private equity funds to report information to the SEC. More specifically, depending on the investment adviser and equity fund, the SEC requires specific disclosures. Failure to make these disclosure or making false disclosures can be the basis of enforcement and bounty actions.
The SEC Targets Individuals and Entities Globally Who Violate the Securities Exchange Act
The SEC pursues individuals and entities, whether located domestically or abroad, who undertake complex schemes to violate the Securities Exchange Act. Further, the SEC seeks SEA violation whistleblowers with original knowledge of illegal conduct that negatively impacts financial markets and defrauds investors.
Through whistleblower protection legislation the federal government offers financial incentives to whistleblowers who anonymously expose significant SEA violations. For a SEA violation to be significant enough for a whistleblower blower to receive an award, the violations have to lead to monetary sanctions of over one million dollars ($1,000,000.00). If the monetary sanction is over one million dollars, the SEC can award the whistleblower up to 30% of the money collected. In other words, in a case where $1 Billion in monetary sanctions is obtained, the whistleblower can receive an award of up to three hundred million dollars ($300,000,000.00). A whistleblower award of $30 million has already been paid to an anonymous whistleblower through the Bounty Action Program and several other large rewards are expected in the future.
SEC Fines Commonly Include Fines for Financial Disgorgement
A financial disgorgement is a repayment of ill-gotten gains that is imposed on wrong-doers by the courts. Thus, funds that were received through illegal or unethical business transactions are disgorged, or paid back, with interest to those affected by the action. Disgorgement is a remedial civil action, rather than a punitive civil action. As applied to the SEC violations, individuals or companies that violate SEC regulations are typically required to pay both civil money penalties and disgorgement. Civil money penalties are punitive, while disgorgement is about paying back profits made from those actions that violated the SEC's regulations. In some instances, disgorgement payments are not only demanded of those who violate securities regulations, but can often also be collected from anyone profiting from illegal or unethical activities.
Some Specialized Financial Professionals Have Specialized Knowledge From Their Independent Analysis of Financial Markets That Will Qualify As Original Information Under SEC Bounty Action Rules And Allow The Professional To Claim Financial Rewards For Exposing Investment Fraud Through Their Specialized Knowledge (Expanded Definition of Original Information to Include Independent Analysis)
The definition of "original information" in the SEC Whistleblower Reward Program, has been expanded from prior whistleblower reward laws to include "independent analysis". This new expanded definition includes a whistleblower’s independent analysis or own examination and evaluation of publicly available information, if and only if that whistleblower's examination, evaluation, and analysis is determined by the SEC to provide vital assistance to the SEC staff in understanding and identifying complex fraud schemes and violations of securities law.
This expanded definition of "original information" does provide an opportunity for financial analysts, money managers, and high end advanced whistleblower to use their expertise and own independent analysis to blow the whistle on large fraud schemes and potentially make large recoveries, however, it is important to realize that these forms of whistleblower awards are new and it is not fully understood how the SEC will apply financial awards based on independent analysis. As such, for the protection of high end financial analyst whistleblowers, money manager whistleblowers, and investors, it may be best to report the fraud through a SEC Whistleblower Reward Program Lawyer that can protect the identity of the whistleblower until it can be determined what type of an award may be offered.
