SEC Pays $30 Million to Tipster

What would you say for that kind of cash?


An anonymous tipster living abroad will be receiving $30 million, in the largest whistleblower award ever doled out by U.S. securities regulators as part of a program that aims to incentivize insiders to report wrongdoing.

The Securities and Exchange Commission said on Monday that the whistleblower provided crucial information that helped investigators uncover a "difficult to detect" ongoing fraud.
