Commodity Futures Trading Commission Wants Whistleblower Help
Individuals May Submit Reward Claims
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced in early March a $22.1 million verdict against a group of individuals and companies allegedly engaged in foreign currency exchange fraud. The CFTC complaint charged the defendants with fraudulently soliciting customers to engage in financed retail forex transactions, primarily involving Iraqi Dinar and Vietnamese Dong, misappropriating customer funds, and various registration violations. The CFTC is rewarding those individuals who provided original information for the case. If you have credible information of any sort of currency or commodity trading fraud (including investment pools, gold, futures, options, or virtual currencies like Bitcoins, for example) call the CFTC whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. today at (415)441-8669.
Investors and other insiders who provided original information of the alleged misrepresentations and fraud will be rewarded. The CFTC has paid out approximately $100 million in awards since its whistleblower program was created under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
