Exclusive: (“Elizabeth Holmes”) When Fraud Meets False Hope

She was once largely considered Silicon Valley 's "Golden Girl", but now, Holmes could arguably be considered one of the greatest scams ever to hit the tech industry. As an entrepreneur, Elizabeth Holmes, notably once claimed that her revolutionary blood-testing devices could essentially change the landscape of medicine as mankind knew it.

Here’s the worst part of Elizabeth Holmes’ shocking fall from grace

The elaborate lie that Theranos built itself on, perhaps, is the same lie in which brought that ship crashing down.  This is where it gets interesting.

Once a world renowned company for the thought that it was created by a woman and it revolutionized the way that we have to get blood taken, er, has now fallen from grace.    According to reports, Therano 's CEO Elizabeth Holmes has reportedly laid off  40% of the company's remaining staff in a  bid to "focus on other products and bring the company back to its former reputation". Last year, Therano 's came under heavy fire for allegations that it falsified documents about its own blood ticking machines that aren't actually what they say they are. Therano 'sswiftly denied the allegations but the fall-back was almost instant.
