On March 23, 2023, before the market opened, Hindenburg Research published a report entitled “Block: How Inflated User Metrics and “Frictionless” Fraud Facilitation Enabled Insiders to Cash Out Over $1 Billion.” According to Bloomberg, shares of Block’s stock fell 20% in morning trading after Hindenburg alleged that “Block’s wildly popular Cash App was likely facilitating fraudsters taking advantage of government stimulus programs during the pandemic.” Among other things, the Hindenburg report states “Block ignored both internal and external warnings that multiple individuals using the same bank account number to receive government funds was a brazen red flag of fraud,” and “Multiple key lapses in Cash App’s compliance processes facilitated billions in government payment fraud.”
