BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith continues its investigation on behalf of Aflac Incorporated (“Aflac” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AFL) investors concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.
On January 11, 2018, The Intercept published an article reporting accusations of fraud and other misconduct made against Aflac. Citing interviews with employees, as well as three previously unreported lawsuits, the article reported that Aflac exploited workers, manipulated its accounting, and deceived shareholders and customers. Among other issues, the article described: employees “selling policies without customer authorization or consent, illegally ‘bundling’ policies, and issuing others to ineligible customers”; manipulation of operational metrics and earnings statements; and “[r]etaliation against whistleblowers.” On this news, shares of Aflac fell sharply thereby injuring investors.
