CFTC ESTABLISHES “ENRON INFORMATION LINK” TO ASSIST THE PUBLIC IN REPORTING SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES THAT MAY HAVE AFFECTED WEST COAST ELECTRICITY OR NATURAL GAS PRICES INVOLVING ENRON OR ANY OTHER COMPANY
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is the independent, federal agency that regulates commodity futures and option markets in the United States.
In carrying out its regulatory and enforcement responsibilities under the Commodity Exchange Act, the CFTC relies upon the public as an important source of information. A questionnaire, available by clicking on the Enron Information Link under the Customer Protection heading on the CFTC’s homepage at www.cftc.gov, has been prepared by the CFTC’s Division of Enforcement (Division) to assist members of the public in reporting suspicious activities or transactions involving Enron or any other company that may have affected West Coast electricity or natural gas prices, or any other commodity, from January 2000 through December 31, 2001. Upon completion, the questionnaire can be transmitted to the Division electronically (by clicking on “Submit” at the bottom of the form) or by mail to the Division of Enforcement, CFTC, 140 Broadway, New York, New York 10005, or by fax to (646) 746-9939.
The CFTC has established several other ways individuals can submit any relevant information:
Charles J. Sgro
CFTC Regional Counsel
