Focused Story of the Week: Hindenburg comes up with a new report!
Hindenburg’s latest target is “Block Inc”. Block is an American mobile payments company, founded by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.
Block is the developer of Cash App; Cash App is a mobile payment service available in the United States and the United Kingdom that allows users to transfer money to one another using a mobile phone app.
Hindenburg alleges that the firm overstated its user accounts, understated its customer acquisition costs, and allowed criminal activity. According to the report that 40-75% of accounts were fake, involved in fraud, or were additional accounts linked to a single individual.
The name “Elon Musk” also appears on dozens of obvious fake Cash App accounts.
This happens because the company continues to allow people to set up its most basic account by providing only a phone number or email and a zip code. No bank account is required.
How it impacts regular users?
One of the pastors at Brown Missionary Church lost hundreds of dollars to phony Cash App accounts.
In June 2022, the pastor discovered that he was not receiving money sent by parishioners because they were directing the money to scam Cash App accounts set up to impersonate his account.
Ordered fake cash app card
Hindenburg Research also ordered a Cash App Card to check if Block’s compliance would take issue. They called for card by the name of “Donald Trump” and they could obtain that card in reality.

Word of the week
Benefit of Indexation: Indexation helps investors to bring down taxes. It calculates the taxes after accounting for inflation. In a high inflation environment, indexation brings down the taxes significantly.
Indexation is an advantage in which if your fund generates 8% return over 3 years and inflation in the same period was 6%, you pay a 20% tax on the difference 8-6 = 2%. So a total tax of 2*20% = 0.4% making your post tax at 8-0.4 = 7.6%.
