Solar Scam

The sheer chutzpah of this dude who scammed the taxpayers out of a bajillion dollars. It's a heck of a story...

Basically, he was selling portable solar panel trailers to Fortune 500 firms who got a nice tax write-off for each one they bought, on the promise that they'd never actually have to take possession of the trailers and could instead rent them out through his corporation and rake in the profits.

It's a lengthy article, but worth the read. It'd make a heck of a movie.
