TL;DR: I on the whistleblower who is mentioned on page 23, foot note 51, on the recently published SEC whistleblower report. The SEC chose to remove all of my whistleblower tips from the report and have engaged in a number of other questionable activities.
EDIT 1: Here is the link to the report: sec.gov
If you are interested in learning more I would invite you to file FOIA / PA requests about exactly how many whistleblower tips were removed from the report. The SEC will not even tell me and a portion of my records were lost.
I am a long time Whistleblower who has recently suffered some setbacks. Despite helping the IRS, CFPB, FBI and others take down financial fraud the SEC appears to be taking a rather destructive stance.
While I will not get into potentially sensitive details, I will say, within the past 2 years I have reported over $3 billion of fraud to the SEC in the form of highly detailed turnkey whistleblower tips - that on some occasions are nearly fully written legal complaints. The SEC has turn the other way and even stated that my numerous tips, even though credible, were slowly the SEC down and that I should stop reporting items to the SEC.
I am writing this now to both vent as well as raise awareness to the public and other whistleblowers. While the SEC regularly publishing big rewards and pushes out how "successful" its whistleblower program their public position is in irreconcilable conflict with internal problems and bad actions plaguing the SEC whistleblower office and its enforcement divisions.
There is more to be learned about the SEC's operations but I have been pretty much stonewalled - I do not know - at a minimum I hope this post can raise awareness and provide knowledge to other whistleblowers who go through so many hoops in the search of justice.
EDIT 2: Mods let me know if this is the write place to post. Thanks in advance.
