I heard a story in the past year of someone that had a system get scanned and it opened a ticket with their IT department for each time they scanned them.  Eventually the IT department system crashed due to the excessive number of tickets being opened by their scanning tool.

The network was properly exempted from the future scans after the system had to be recovered from backup.
