Michael Douglas, Academy Award winner and star of Wall Street and several other motion pictures, has answered the call to public service. He is featured in a new FBI public service announcement video in which he calls on citizens to report securities fraud and insider trading.
Thank you very much, Michael Douglas.

For more information on how you can identify securities fraud, or to report insider training, contact your local FBI office. Or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.
