Tested Green, a fraudulent firm that sold environmental certificates that proved to be neither tested, certified, nor green, has been banned from the business by the Federal Trade Commission.

More than 100 companies paid sums ranging from $190 to $550 for Tested Green's certificates, which the company claimed were endorsed by two independent firms. But both of these firms are owned by by Tested Green's owner, Jeremy Ryan Claeys (pictured right), says the FTC.

Claeys, a former journalist, was also a failed Republican candidate for Kansas Secretary of State, and ran the Tested Green scam while running for office.
