On March 9 and 25, 2015 by the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC's") Claims Review Staff ("CRS") recommended an award in excess of $3 million for a whistleblower Claimant and recommended the denial of an award to a second whistleblower Claimant. The denial was predicated upon the second Claimant's "unreasonable delay in reporting the illegal conduct to the Commission."
The whistleblower's specific and detailed information comprehensively laid out the fraudulent scheme which otherwise would have been very difficult for investigators to detect. The whistleblower's initial tip also led to related actions that increased the whistleblower's award.
