Theranos. Ha! I was thinking about trying one of their blood tests, but I decided to read a bit about them first. All I had to know was that Henry Kissinger was on their board of directors and it was clear that running away fast was the only option.

I know a couple of people who worked there. One was there for quite a while, involved in IT stuff. Another was brought in at an executive level, quickly determined it was a fraud, and left within a week.

Sounds like it might be a book worth reading.
