How to Report Embezzlement to the SEC
When you suspect that your employer or someone you know is involved in an embezzlement scheme, you can report the information you have to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
When you do, there is a strong possibility that you could be entitled to a whistleblower award, depending on whether you’ve met the SEC’s criteria. Below, we discuss how you can report your tip online easily, and why you might want to reach out to an attorney before you blow the whistle.
Submitting Your Tip Online
When you want to report your tip as easily as possible, you can do so by submitting your information through the SEC’s tips, complaints, and referrals portal. You also have the option of filling out Form TCR and either mailing or faxing it in.
Remaining Anonymous as a Whistleblower
Whistleblowing is risky business, and with this in mind, you can report your tip anonymously when you work with a highly trained SEC whistleblower lawyer. Your attorney will protect your identity at all costs.
So much so that not even the SEC will know who tipped them off. Once the fraudsters have been sanctioned, and a whistleblower award has become available to you, will your identity need to become known.
