CFTC Grants $9 Million as Award for Whistleblower

The US’s CFTC has recently granted a $9 million award to one of its whistleblowers. This award is one of top five from the overseer’s Whistleblower Program.

This whistleblower gave a specific and credible tip that led to an open investigation, and as a consequence brought the culprits to justice. The US watchdog granted the whistleblower with the $9 million reward on Monday.

However. the details of the tip and the doings of the culprits has not been disclosed by the commission, neither has the identity of the whistleblower been revealed.

James McDonald Director of Enforcement at CFTC, said the following,

We recognise that often whistleblowers come forward to report misconduct at great personal and professional risk. Cases like this serve as a reminder that the Whistleblower Program can reward that courage in a very real way, helping to soften the blow of any adverse consequences those whistleblowers might face.”

The act of whistle blowing does come with a rage or risks, however it is a lucrative opportunity.
For example, the CFTC awarded a $30 million grant to an unknown whistleblower on July 2018. This at the time was the largest amount given to whistleblower any since the CFTC’s Whistleblower Program began.

  1. During 2016 while I was going through a very rough period in my life I was contacted by Xtrade and UFX at about the same time. I had never traded before and both representatives convinced me that I could make up to one million dollars by trading CFD’s and to ensure I did they would direct all of my tradings. My initial investment was only $250USD which turned out to be insignificant. From that first investment, I was contacted every day and started to make money trading currencies, gold and oil. On every occasion, I was contacted in the main by UFX operating out of Cyprus I was asked to invest more money. I invested all of my savings over $700,000 plus the total of a personal superannuation fund together with a large percentage of my shares. I asked on numerous occasions to make a withdrawal but the time was never right according to my UFX assistant Chris Miller. One week when I stated I would not trade anymore unless I made a substantial withdrawal he agrees to process the W/D at the end of the week. On one night that week when I told him I was going out and he offered to look after my account. When I came home I was losing money and when I traded under his direction I lost 1.1million USD in approx 4 minutes. He left me with approx $6000USD but never contacted me again. When I tried to contact him by the phone number he gave me I got through to the Cyprus UFX office the receptionist claimed they did not have a Chris Miller working there. I am currently trying to total up my investments with UFX and so far I have come up with $962,244.50USD from my banking records and T/transfers. I lost the lot and they took all the money I had left in the account. I have paperwork prepared by UFX where they claim that they have sent me the balance of the funds to my account and that I had made large withdrawals during the period I was trading. I did get one amount of $2000.00. I must also add that during that period I had up to four different traders for all around the world contact me each night and even today I would average three calls a day. I was even taken by Binary trading companies. Can you tell me what I can do as now know that their actions were criminal? I have so much more to add like losses with Zurich Prime, Binary book, 365 Binary,2Dots, Iberia Markets and others

    1. Hi David Bradley Sadly like me you were conned. The mistake we made was to think that those constant adverts for bitcoin telling us we could make so much money. And to get the automatic trading system for £180 but they never took less than £250 so we were conned.. Do you have any voice recordings or pics of these evil scumbags.
      I’ll help you find them. I lost £5000 all the money I had saved in my account to 365markets mostly and about £400 to other european fake brokers from Brightertrade
      What we do is work together there are thousands of us.. They have created a small army of soldiers who want there’re money and revenge..

There is something seriously wrong with this fucking country.. I think together we can think of something better. I will pay anyone £10,000 for the wearabouts of that fake cunting Briana Nicholson who claimed to be a Russian American aged about 31 in Sept 2018 when she conned me to give more money to her fake firm.., Some or most of this I believe to be true.. Because she knew I can’t see her face.. She sounded American but possibly went there as a kid. If anyone grasses her up. “I’ll pay £10,000 I know the cunts voice So if anyone tries to con me to waste my time thinking they’re gona get my money.. You’ve been warned..
      I will brake every bone in your body And I DONT LIE Hehe I spoke to the C*NT for 5 hours over the space of 2 weeks each time 25-30 mins I could recognise her voice in a packed bar or more likely in a supermarket
      Always record these fake scammers voices when they call.. Let’s find these FUCKERS!
