Commodity Futures Trading Commission Wants Whistleblower Help
Blowing The Whistle On Fraud
CFTC Announces Large Whistleblower Award
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. In early June, the CFTC announced a $6 million whistleblower award* for information on commodities trading fraud. The large reward brought the total awarded by the CFTC to private whistleblowers to over $110 million since the inception of the CFTC Whistleblower Program in 2014. 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.
“This award — together with the many that have preceded it — shows that in its short history, the Commission’s Whistleblower Program has significantly strengthened our enforcement program,” said CFTC Director of Enforcement James McDonald. “The contribution that whistleblowers have made cannot be overstated. To use just one data point, whistleblowers have led the CFTC to obtain nearly $900 million in monetary relief. We are very grateful for the value that whistleblowers have added to our investigations and litigations.” “Sizeable awards like this one should signal to potential whistleblowers that there are real financial incentives to promptly reporting violations to the CFTC,” added Whistleblower Office Director Christopher Ehrman.
