Within hours of a scathing report from short seller Hindenburg Research accusing Jack Dorsey's company Block of inflating its user numbers and ignoring fraud, among other things, Dorsey's net worth had taken a $526 million nosedive, per NDTV, which cites the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The 11% plunge left his wealth at $4.4 billion. His stake in Block is estimated at $3 billion; the company's stock fell 15% Thursday, CNBC reports. Bloomberg says Block denies the allegations and is considering legal action against Hindenburg. Read more from the report here. (More Jack Dorsey stories.)
