You can make up to 30% on all monetary sanctions over $1 million imposed by the SEC as a whistleblower. Last week the SEC handed out $875,000 to 2 informants.
However, your information had better be correct. The SEC denied payment to one person now and in the future and as to related matters whose claims were “patently baseless” and were found to be “vague,unsupported, and utterly incredible…”
The good news is that the SEC investigates these claims and doesn’t just rely on the submissions of persons who may have ulterior motives to turn someone in.
