An Offer That Whistle-blowers Can't Refuse?

The Securities and Exchange Commission wants to pay fraud informants as much as 30% of the amount that investigators recover.

Whistle Blowers Beware!

Based on my experience as a Sarbanes-Oxley whistle blower, these offers are empty. The SEC proposed rules practically require the corporate compliance officers to construct termination for all the interested parties prior to permitting an SEC investigation. My experience is that the Department of Labor, the Department of Justice, and the SECrecy Agency have little to no interest in helping whistleblowers. Expect them to let the corporation drive the whistleblower into legal fee bankruptcy. They've had a reward program for whistleblowers for years and no one has ever been paid.
