Corporation A uses Corporation B that is inactive to conduct

This answer was rated:

Corporation A uses Corporation B that is inactive to conduct business in Corporatin B name. We are talking about two different corporations.
What legal actions could happen to corporation A for doing this?
Thank you!
If they are two completely corporations and A has no rihgts to the name of B, then it is fraud and anyone that is dealing with them would have a claim for fraud. The true owners of B would also have a suit. The claims would depend on the specific circumstances.
