The most expensive LIE!

What is the most expensive lie that you are aware of?

The one comes to my mind immediately is “Volkswagen Emission Scandal”

I don’t know exactly how much it costed Volkswagen in the end, but it would be in billions of dollars. Here are some headlines from few news sources to give you an idea.
