The clock and 14 other phony products were part of an investigation into the Energy Star program conducted by the Government Accountability Office, which submitted 20 fraudulent Energy Star applications from four fake companies. GAO said the fact that it could so easily dupe the government shows that the Energy Star program provides scant assurance for consumers.
