(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Bob Lee, the creator of the Cash App, also the Chief Product Officer of MobileCoin, was fatally stabbed in San Francisco, California.
The San Francisco Police Department reported they discovered Lee with several fatal stab wounds on Tuesday at 2:35 a.m.
Lee was immediately taken to the hospital, where he was eventually declared dead.
It was also interesting to learn that a new report from Hindenburg Research, a short seller investment firm, released Thursday has accused Block — the company formerly known as Square, founded by Jack Dorsey — of allowing crime and fraud to “run rampant” on its peer-to-peer payment app, Cash App.
The report alleged that Block inflated its customer growth, allowed fake accounts to thrive, and dodged revenue regulations — an accusation that triggered a Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation.
Hindenburg claims it was able to open fake accounts on Cash App under the names Donald Trump and Elon Musk.
“Former employees estimated that 40%-75% of accounts they reviewed were fake, involved in fraud, or were additional accounts tied to a single individual,” Hindenburg said.
Block called the report “factually inaccurate” in a statement and said it is complying with the SEC and exploring legal action against Hindenburg. The immediate impact was a 15% drop in Block’s stock price.
