Commodity Futures Trading Commission Wants Whistleblower Help
Blowing The Whistle On Fraud
CFTC Polices Futures Trading
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) rewards individuals who provide original information to the CFTC about fraudulent trading schemes in futures, options, foreign currency, virtual currency and commodities like gold or other precious metal trading. Sometimes, the fraud includes subscriptions to trading services or “seminars” that mislead consumers regarding trading schemes in futures and commodities. If you have credible information of any sort of futures, options, currency or commodity trading fraud (including investment pools, gold, futures, options, or virtual currencies) call the CFTC whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. today at (415)441-8669.
Recently, the CFTC announced a consent order in a whistleblower case charging a group of defendants with fraudulently soliciting consumers to subscribe to a trading system that included a supposedly “live” foreign exchange (forex) and commodity futures online trading room, educational videos, and online support. According to the consent order defendants fraudulently promoted and sold access to an online trading system that included a methodology for determining when to enter and exit forex and commodity futures contracts. The CFTC found that, as a result of the fraudulent solicitation scheme, defendants received approximately $1.3 million in subscription fees from more than 300 members located in the United States and abroad. Persons who provided information to the CFTC regarding the alleged fraud are eligible for a reward.
