Becoming a whistleblower, and exposing commodities and futures fraud, is an opportunity available under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Protection Act. Protecting some of the biggest markets in the U.S., the Commodity Futures Trading Commission regulates all commodity futures and options markets in the U.S. A wide array of entities are regulated by the CFTC, including many hedge funds, futures brokers, commodities exchanges and traders.
Some areas that are ripe for CFTC Fraud include:
- Commodity pool operators;
- Foreign currency and precious metals trading;
- Trading Systems sold on the Internet related to futures and options;
- Investments in assets based on seasonal demand; and
- False promises of profits as a result of natural disasters.
