Securities Fraud

Securities Fraud

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Whistleblower Program was established at the direction of the recent financial overhaul law, known as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.  The SEC Whistleblower Program went into place in 2011, and provides for substantial awards for blowing the whistle and reporting securities fraud. 

The SEC Whistleblower Program provides significant financial incentives and protections for whistleblowers who report violations of federal securities laws.  Whistleblowers will receive a substantial and mandatory reward if the SEC recovers more than $1 million based on the information the whistleblower provided.
