NEW YORK, June 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Citizens Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: CFG) from March 18, 2016 through March 29, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Citizens investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE.
The complaint alleges that defendants during the Class Period made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Citizens employees were falsifying information related to the Citizens Checkup program; (2) in turn, Citizens' reported Citizens Checkup figures were inflated; and (3) as a result, defendants' statements about Citizens' business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. On March 29, 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported that certain Citizens employees admitted that Citizens employees faked "financial checkup" meetings with customers. On this news, shares of Citizens declined, damaging investors.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 26, 2017.
