DEA Disables Major Pharmaceutical Internet Scheme
Story Text:

Maybe we're up for some change at the pharm, 4600 is a nice amount of domains, or maybe as suggested here its only "Nah, that's 1 web site and 4,599 doorway pages I reckon, They've got Yahoo! search sussed ;-) " - See the DEA press release

From 5staraffiliateprograms

I have to assume that for this many sites to be involved, some type of affiliate marketing was involved, although affiliates were not mentioned in any of the reports I read. The risk to affiliates is not only coming under government scrutiny or potential arrest, but also the certainty of not being paid when these illegal companies go under. Affiliates - JUST SAY NO to online drug sales!

About time!

I never could understand how all these illegal sites could just keep operating selling prescription drugs without prescriptions.

Maybe they'll go after the illegal gambling sites next if we're lucky.

The press release mentions a few names, but no domains:

Today's arrests included Johar Saran, of Arlington, TX; Gaston Blanchet and Gil Lozano, of Miami, FL; S. Ted Solomon, of Orlando, FL; and Steve Rosner, of Boca Raton, FL. These individuals are the alleged ringleaders of this multi-million dollar drug distribution network.

Probably best we didnt get

Probably best we didnt get into the WHO of this, far to much potential for abuse on a site like this :)

no urls please folks, thanks.

Lots O Spam

I mentioned in my 5 Star blog, where Nick pulled the story from, that one of the many stories I researched before blogging this talked about how much RX drug SPAM these guys were sending out. So hopefully our inboxes will be a little cleaner after this bust.

Catchy name

Operation CYBERx

Someone seriously dropped the ball of cool operation names on that one.
