The web site gefraud.com, began by forensic accountant Harry Markopolos, seems to be gone. This was the location the place stakeholders may obtain the Markopolos report, which alleged GE’s accounting for its long run care insurance coverage enterprise, amongst different issues, was fraudulent. The expenses set off a wild month of trading in General Electric inventory, and had been repeatedly denied by GE, which referred to as them meritless.
General Electric CEO Larry Culp bought GE stock the day the report was launched calling it an try at market manipulation “pure and simple.” Markopolos previewed his report back to a hedge fund promoting quick GE inventory and took part in any positive factors made on the fund’s bearish guess. The identify of the hedge fund stays a thriller.
When requested in regards to the website, GE declined to remark. Markopolos wasn’t instantly out there for remark.
