View Full Version : Worldwide crack-down on fake pharmaceutical and medical sites
09-29-2011, 02:47 PM
After a lot of effort by many people, from many organizations, including us here, SpamCop, other scam and fraud reporting sites and our friends in Law Enforcement in many countries, we have had a major success in dealing with fake pharmaceuticals sites, with their attendant identity theft, credit card skimming and similar activities. Please read the whole story at Rogue drug websites shut after illegal op kills London student (http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23992460-rogue-drug-websites-shut-after-illegal-op-kills-london-student.do). This has resulted in many thousands of fake websites being shut down, and possibly hundreds of millions Euros being denied to the operators.
Another big win for the side of law and order. :D

Well done to all those involved, both at the pointy end and those working behind the scenes.
Hopefully further deaths will be avoided.

The latest information on this has now become available at Russian gangs behind global medicine scams - UK police (http://uk.news.yahoo.com/russian-gangs-behind-global-medicine-scams-uk-police-121928050.html) and Fake medicine trade: UK crackdown on drug importers (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-15095056). The worldwide cooperation and response on every continent has been amazing, with more reports at Fake ****** importer from Northampton jailed (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-14861560) which follows on from earlier activity in both the UK and USA. The UK arrests reported in the second link above are matched by even larger numbers in other countries.

That's great news. Maybe all the Canadian pharmacy spam I receive will go away. I've attempted to have many of these sites removed, but they are hosted on rogue servers that ignore all abuse complaints (such as jump.ro) because these Russian criminals are paying them good money to host their scams. I've noticed these sites recently quit listing narcotic pain killers (vicodin, oxycontin, codeine, etc.) because it draws a lot of attention from LEA.
I use the US DEA's site to report illegal on-line pharmacies, at https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/webforms/jsp/umpire/umpireForm.jsp. If anyone knows of an international web site to send reports to, please share the info.

So no more spam? Ha. I wish.
Wait, what? She wanted to make her butt bigger? Didn't anyone explained the facts of life to this woman?
