Hazim Gaber of Edmonton, Canada Sentenced For Selling Fake Drugs

Fake cancer drugs — A Canadian man was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for selling counterfeit cancer drugs over the Internet. Hazim Gaber, 21, of Edmonton, Canada, was indicted in 2009 on five counts of wire fraud for selling the fake drugs through the website DCAadvice.com. Gaber pleaded guilty in May, admitting that he sold the phony drugs to at least 65 victims in the United States and four other countries in 2007. He had promised to ship customers the highly sought-after experimental drug sodium dichloroacetate, also called DCA, but instead he sent a white powdery substance that contained starch, dextrin or lactose, the FBI said in a news release. Gaber was sentenced Wednesday in Phoenix.
