International Bribery Rewards: New SEC Bounty Actions Offer Large Financial Rewards to People that Properly Expose International Bribes to Public Officials from Large Corporations by International Bribery Reward Lawyer

New Anti-corruption Laws and SEC Whistleblower Reward Laws/Bounty Actions combine to offer large financial rewards to individuals that properly expose international bribery schemes.  These new laws allow International Whistleblowers to protect their identities and while seeking large financial rewards for exposing illegal bribes and other Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations.  By working through an International Whistleblower Reward Lawyer, an International Whistleblower can have their claim confidentially reviewed and protect their identity.  If you are aware of a significant Foreign Corrupt Practice Act violation and want additional information on SEC Bounty Actions, please go to the following web site: International Whistleblower Reward Laws or feel free to contact Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Whistleblower Reward Lawyer Jason Coomer.

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Whistleblower Rewards

Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the new SEC Whistleblower Incentive Program, whistleblowers with original and specialized knowledge and evidence of corporate bribery and illegal kickbacks are eligible to recover large economic awards.  By gathering this evidence and going through a lawyer, these whistleblowers can protect their identity through the process and potentially collect large rewards of 10% to 30% of the monetary sanctions imposed by the SEC.  These rewards include disgorged funds that can be in the hundreds of millions or Billions of dollars.  If you are aware of an illegal bribe or illegal kickback that was used to secure a large contract, it is important that you step forward to expose the corruption. 

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Violations

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) prohibits bribery of foreign officials by U.S. and foreign companies listed on the U.S. securities exchange.  The FCPA also requires companies to maintain accurate books and records.  Illegal bribes, fraudulent accounting, and false disclosures are all types of FCPA violations. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Whistleblowers that properly report FCPA violations by a U.S. or foreign company listed on the U.S. securities exchanges can recover a large reward for exposing FCPA violations.  These rewards can be extremely large when the bribe is for a procurement contract, pharmaceutical contract, or oil drilling lease.  The rewards can also be extremely large when a bank or other financial institute commits securities or investment fraud.
