One of my mentors and former bosses once received (from a journal editor) for refereeing a scientific article submitted for publication, - with the results obtained by his group, but the article was written and submitted by a person who was the sole author on the article. That person had spent some short time as a visitor in the said group/lab and was not even the lead person on that project: he was only briefly involved in that project (so, he could've been an author on the article submitted from that lab, but not the first/second author.) So, in essence that "author" stole those results by attributing them to himself.

Here is a similar story from the photography world:

Sometimes you realize how small the submarine is...
