According to the report, “[f]ormer employees described how Cash App suppressed internal concerns and ignored user pleas for help as criminal activity and fraud ran rampant on its platform.”

On this news, shares of Block common stock dropped $10.77 per share, or over 14%, to close at $61.88 per share on March 23, 2023.

Since 1993, Bernstein Liebhard LLP has recovered over $3.5 billion for its clients.
