Sometimes the best-laid branding schemes are a little too revealing. Take, for example, the purported clean-energy firm that made big promises to investors about developing a greener alternative to fracking, until the Securities and Exchange Commision revealed it to be nothing but an empty shell company running a pump-and-dump scheme.
