The Scoretop 84

GMAC announced that they canceled the GMAT scores of 84 Scoretop users:

The Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®) has announced the completion of its investigation of GMAT® test takers who paid to receive active test questions on the Web site Scoretop.com, in violation of GMAC testing policies and procedures.

As a result of the investigation, GMAC has canceled the scores of a total of 84 test-takers. Twelve posted live GMAT questions on the Scoretop Web site and will not be eligible to take the test again for a minimum of three years. The remaining 72 wrote messages on Scoretop confirming that they saw items from the site on their GMAT exam. The scores of these individuals were also canceled; however, they are now allowed to re-test. Schools to which test scores of the students have been sent have also received notification of this action.

Business Week reports that of 12 barred for three years and 72 who need to retake it, some have already been admitted or graduated from business school.
