Report Suspected Securities Fraud or Wrongdoing

Sept. 20, 2017

Operating Status

Due to the ongoing federal government shutdown, the SEC is currently operating in accordance with the agency's plan for operating during a shutdown. The SEC has staff available to respond to emergency situations involving market integrity and investor protection, including law enforcement. In addition, our plan calls for the continuing operation of certain Commission systems, including the online Tips, Complaints, and Referrals (TCR) System. During the federal government shutdown, the public may continue to submit tips, complaints, or referrals to the Commission through the TCR System at and submissions will be reviewed for appropriate action.

**The TCR complaint form is compatible for use with Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) version 11, Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome (please note that use of the Chrome browser may result in some visual format issues including the display of instructional pop up boxes). **
