On March 23, 2023, Hindenburg Research ("Hindenburg") published a report on block entitled "Block: How Inflated User Metrics and 'Frictionless' Fraud Facilitation Enabled Insiders To Cash Out Over $1 Billion." Citing "dozens of interviews with former employees, partners, and industry experts, extensive review of regulatory and litigation records, and FOIA and public records requests", the Hindenburg report alleges that "Block has systematically taken advantage of the demographics it claims to be helping. The 'magic' behind Block's business has not been disruptive innovation, but rather the company's willingness to facilitate fraud against consumers and the government, avoid regulation, dress up predatory loans and fees as revolutionary technology, and mislead investors with inflated metrics."
On this news, Block's stock price fell $10.77 per share, or 14.82%, to close at $61.88 per share on March 23, 2023.
