one of the older threads got deleted - can't find it but it had instructions - from memory here is what was requested:
A.) Submit FOIA requests for draft copies of the 2016 annual Whistleblower Report.
On page 27, footnote 51 of the 2016 Annual Report (sec.gov/whistleblower/reportspubs/annual-reports/owb-annual-report-2016.pdf) the SEC admits to removing an 'unusual' number of tips from OP. OP had reason to believe that this removal of information was influenced by:
- Nikkia Wharton, the Communications Officer at the SEC's Whistleblower division admitted that Whistleblower tips are regularly deleted from SEC's computers if they look "sensitive" - which many of OPs tips were, meaning that they actually may have deleted numerous records that should have been included in the 2016 report. It is entirely possible that the SEC could not even calculate the number of deleted tips.
-The SEC admitted that over 23 tips from OP were "corrupted" without discussing these details further - yet they refused to search email accounts, recoveries, or backups, meaning that they may have acted to purposefully bury information that should have been presented in the report.
-The above are violations of the Federal Records Act, Whistleblower records rules, and the SEC's own rules and where there is one problem there are likely others.
B.) Document the fact that OP was not a hacker and simply obtained the evidence by conducting searches on sobaidupan.com and panc.cc for sensative keywords such as "EB-5", "Whistleblower", "FCPA", "Private Placement", "Offering Documents", "Confidential", "Priviledged" Google "how to create a search dork" for the basics.
Some of the information has been removed but here are a few still available:
Generally speaking the desires of OP, although convoluted appear to be based on a desire to:
1.) Make the SEC change and pursue actions that would put pressure on the SEC to actually doe its job rather than looking the other way and deleting documents.
2.) Preserve the evidence and make it available for other fraud analyzers and investigative journalists.
3.) Protect the investors/victims involved in these schemes and help hold those responsible for the fraud accountable.
