There are certain requirements that need to be met in order to remain completely anonymous to the public when you become a CFTC Whistleblower. In this FAQ, you will learn how to ensure your identity will be protected and how to qualify for the financial award you deserve.
The Dodd-Frank Act created the first whistleblower reward programs, covering both commodity futures and securities frauds. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has jurisdiction over securities frauds, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has jurisdiction over commodity frauds. Together, these two offices cover the publicly traded economy.
The CFTC Whistleblower Program allows for those with inside knowledge of commodities fraud to remain fully confidential in order to avoid retaliation or other adverse actions from employers.
