Enticing the Top Echelon: How the IRS, SEC and CFTC Attract High-Level Whistleblowers

With three new whistleblower reward programs, the government has made it attractive for high-level insiders to report fraud, bribery of foreign officials, illegal tax shelters, Ponzi schemes and other financial crimes.

Learn who can be a whistleblower, the anonymity the programs offer, how whistleblower claims are handled and how the size of the whistleblower rewards are determined from the directors of the whistleblower offices of the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission as well as two partners from Phillips & Cohen LLP, whose whistleblower cases have recovered more than $7 billion in civil settlements and related criminal fines.
