Can I receive a bounty for providing information about someone who has committed insider trading?
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act expands the opportunities and amounts for bounties. Among the law's many provisions, it creates a program that lets the SEC pay an award to eligible whistleblowers who voluntarily provide the SEC with original information about a violation of the federal securities laws, such as insider trading. For the bounty to be issued, this information must lead to the successful enforcement of covered judicial or administrative actions. See the website of the SEC for more details, related regulations, and the online submission form.
