This traditional securities law violation, generally directed at individuals, can cover a wide variety of activity and result in cases with multiple defendants, although recent cases have narrowed the scope of liability. The SEC will usually take immediate and intense interest in tips leading to bringing such cases, especially if the activity is ongoing. In large cases, the amount of losses to investors (or gains to the defendants) can exceed the million-dollar threshold needed for a whistleblower award.
