The investigation concerns whether CenturyLink and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On June 16, 2017, Bloomberg published an article entitled "CenturyLink Is Accused of Running a Wells Fargo-Like Scheme", reporting that a "former CenturyLink Inc. employee claims she was fired for blowing the whistle on the telecommunications company's high-pressure sales culture that left customers paying millions of dollars for accounts they didn't request." The article states that "she was fired days after notifying Chief Executive Officer Glen Post of the alleged scheme during a companywide question-and-answer session held on an internal message board."
On this news, CenturyLink's share price fell $1.23, or more than 4.5%, to close at $25.72 on June 16, 2017.
