FDA fights Web pharmacies selling unapproved drugs

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2012
BY LINDA A. JOHNSON
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FDA moves to halt sales of unapproved drugs on 4,100 sites.

TRENTON — The Food and Drug Administration is stepping up its fight against counterfeit and other potentially harmful medicines sold over the Internet.

The agency is ordering operators of about 4,100 websites to immediately stop selling unapproved medications to U.S. consumers.

The move is part of a weeklong global crackdown by regulatory bodies and law enforcement on websites selling counterfeit, substandard and unapproved medicines, aimed at making the global medicine supply safer.

It also follows the FDA’s recent launching of a campaign to warn consumers that most online pharmacies do not follow laws or pharmacy industry standards and their products could harm or even kill. The campaign includes a new website, fda.gov/BeSafeRx, which explains the risks of fake online pharmacies and how to tell the difference in those websites from legitimate ones.

The FDA has sent warning letters to three companies behind most of the 4,100 websites it identified as illegally selling potentially dangerous, unapproved drugs. It’s also seized some illegal medicines, filed civil and criminal charges against companies and individuals, and contacted Internet registrars and service providers, asking them to suspend the 4,100 websites.

“This is a first step,” said Sarah Clark-Lynn, an FDA spokeswoman. “The door isn’t closed on these cases.”

According to the FDA one business, CanadaDrugs.com, operates 3,710 of the targeted websites. Another, identified in the warning letter as Eyal Bar Oz, runs more than 200 sites. A third, Arkadiy Kisin/White Forest Solutions, also operates more than 200 sites.

The warning letters say that the websites have been offering unapproved drugs to U.S. consumers. The letters, sent to the companies from Sept. 18 to 21, order them to reply within 10 business days. None of the companies responded to requests for comment from The Associated Press on Friday.

Clark-Lynn said she did not know whether any of the companies had responded to the FDA.

The drugs include various versions of the erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, as well as an unapproved contraceptive called Norplant, an unapproved generic version of the influenza treatment Tamiflu, an unapproved antibiotic called Baycip TZ and a drug for stomach disorders that also increases production of breast milk but is not approved because it’s been linked to irregular heartbeats, cardiac arrest and sudden death.

The warning letters to the three companies are part of a simultaneous crackdown on online sellers of counterfeit and illegal medical products, involving police and regulators in 100 countries around the world.

Ex-online Pharmacy Titan Arrested in U.S.

By: Gabrielle Giroday
Winnipeg Free Press

It’s a staggering tale that took a young man from a high-flying Internet entrepreneur in Minnedosa to a jail cell in Miami in a decade.

The epic rise of 38-year-old Andrew Strempler as an online pharmacy magnate crashed after his arrest this past Wednesday at the Miami International Airport, as he made his way to Canada from South America.

Strempler — once profiled by the New York Times as a “rich man” who went out of his way not to disguise his wealth — had attracted notice as one of Manitoba’s most flamboyant young businessmen as he built the online pharmacy business RxNorth.com from a century-old building in downtown Minnedosa.

That success meant the purchase of a Wellington Crescent mansion that once belonged to Leonard Asper and a collection of flashy cars that included two Dodge Vipers and a yellow Lamborghini.

Strempler was charged Wednesday with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, as well as two counts of mail fraud.

As of Friday, he was at a federal detention centre in Miami.

Prisoners in the jail must wake up at 6 a.m. on weekdays and submit to cell inspections.

Jay Boschman, a Brandon-based pharmacist who almost went into business with Strempler, said he was “not surprised at all” to hear about what happened.

The pair met in the 1990s at a pharmacy in Rossburn. Strempler struck Boschman as a “sharp person,” and the pair shared Christian beliefs as Strempler developed his business.

“He was young, and he was energetic, and I thought he was a sharp, sharp pharmacist,” said Boschman.

But the two drifted apart and haven’t spoken in more than a decade.

“As he became richer and richer, he seemed to disregard maybe some of the laws of the land,” said Boschman.

Court documents filed in Miami show authorities are seeking the forfeiture of US$95 million it’s alleged Strempler received through crime.

The charges against Strempler date from a period between January 2005 to June 2006.

Documents filed in a U.S. District Court in Florida allege Strempler — as founder and owner of Mediplan Health Consulting, which also operated under the name RxNorth.com — had received a letter in 2001 saying his drug sales south of the border would be illegal if the products weren’t approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The Free Press chronicled some of the further hurdles the business faced, after Strempler bought out his partners and sold it in 2006, the same year the FDA warned drugs purchased from the firm were unsafe.

By 2009, Strempler had struck his name from a provincial pharmacy registry and had to pay $7,500 to stay charges against him at a disciplinary hearing at the Manitoba Pharmaceutical Asssociation.

The court documents say Strempler and others used a facility named Personal Touch in Freeport, the Bahamas, “to dispense prescription drugs purchased from RxNorth,” from January 2005 to June 2006.

“Andrew J. Strempler and others caused prescription orders made through RxNorth to be filled at the facility in the Bahamas, with labels on the vials and drug cartons stating they had been filled by RxNorth in Canada,” said court documents.

Strempler was licensed as a pharmacist in Manitoba, said the documents, and Mediplan was also based in the province.

“It was the purpose of the conspiracy for the defendant and his co-conspirators to unlawfully enrich themselves by selling prescription drugs in the United States, falsely representing that RxNorth was selling safe prescription drugs in compliance with the rules of regulatory authorities in Canada, the United Kingdom and/or the United States, when in fact… (they) obtained the prescription drugs from various other countries without properly ensuring the safety or authenticity of the drugs,” said the documents.

U.S. marshals arrested Strempler at the Miami airport on a pending warrant, said Alicia Valle, special counsel to the U.S. attorney.

Strempler’s Miami-based lawyer did not respond to a message left with her office Friday.

RCMP D Division spokesman Cpl. Miles Hiebert said there were no outstanding warrants for Strempler’s arrest in Canada and he is not facing criminal charges here.

Internet.bs an ICANN Registar That Protect Rogue Online Pharmacy Websites

Internet.bs an ICANN approved registar in Europe has been identified as a registar that act as a facilicator for “Rogue Online Pharmacy Websites.” They have provided registration of these pharmacy sites to go unchecked and served as incubator. Now a study by LegitScript published on March 11, 2012 appear to confirm that suspicion.

The report estimated that Internet.bs is the Registrar for 33% to 44% of all non-spam rogue online pharmacy domain names, and showed how Internet.bs was willing to help us, even after being informed that they would be used for counterfeit drug sales and the sale of prescription drugs without a prescription.

The WhoIs registration below appears to follow the pattern we at scamFRAUDalert have seen over the years.

Rogue Pharmacy Payment Processing Companies –

hqgate.com & gateline.net

1. The customer through Internet connects to the Internet-shop web-server, fills the shopping cart and selects the payment method by cards. The shop redirects the connection to the gateway.

2. Then he/she fills the payment form on the gateway side. All connection with the customer is protected by SSL protocol (see security page). GateLine together with the bank’s processing system checks the validity of credit card information. If the transaction is not authorized, GateLine sends the rejection of authorization to the customer, with the reason, and to the shop with the order number.

3. If transaction is authorized, it is transferred to the acquiring bank, which connects to the bank-issuer to check the balance of the account, and make payment.

4. After receiving the results of payment, the acquiring bank sends information to GateLine, which in its turn, sends acknowledgement to customer and to the shop, which ships goods/services.

Internet.bs an ICANN Approved Registar Accused of Protecting Rogue Pharmacies

Internet.bs an ICANN approved registar has long been suspected of facilicating the polution of “rogue online pharmacies” by it registary. That suspicion was confirmed when Legitscript – a PharmaCrime Safe Haven , an NABP approved watchdog group that monitor online pharmacies issued a report indicating that Internet.bs not only registered these domains, but act as an incubator and shield for these rogue online pharmacy sites.

According to the report, they estimated that Internet.bs is the Registrar for 33% to 44% of all non-spam rogue online pharmacy domain names, and showed how Internet.bs was willing to help us, even after being informed that they would be used for counterfeit drug sales and the sale of prescription drugs without a prescription.

The WhoIs registration below shows a pattern consistent to what we at scamFRAUDalert see with most fraudulent websites registration. That is registration listing in Panama or Bahamas. A country or place that lack the capabilities and infrastructure to enforce its laws.

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.

Report Criticizes Yahoo over Prescription-Drug Ads

By David Fitzpatrick and Drew Griffin
CNN Special Investigations Unit

NEW YORK (CNN) — One of the largest Internet search engines is being accused of violating both federal and state laws by accepting advertising from online pharmacies it should have known were selling drugs without valid prescriptions.

Two small research firms, Legitscript.com and KnujOn.com, say that during a three-month period in the spring and early summer of 2009, Yahoo routinely accepted ads from dozens of online pharmacies that dispensed drugs without a valid prescription.

The allegation is included in a new report by the two firms, which said their researchers used “blind” buys — purchases made without disclosing their identities — to obtain a wide range of prescription drugs from nearly a dozen online pharmacy sites that advertised on Yahoo. The researchers, the companies said, often had real-time interaction with online pharmacy employees.

“If search engines continue to knowingly facilitate illegal prescription drug sales, then we will continue to issue these reports,” said Garth Bruen, president of KnujOn.com.

The two companies earlier accused the new Microsoft search engine Bing of similar practices. Bing said it had followed all “acceptable” practices and would increase security on its search engine.

Researchers from the two companies say they were able to buy drugs such as Ambien, Tramadol and Soma — along with a range of others — merely by filling out an online form. They received the drugs within a day or two, the companies reported.

Both Yahoo and the other major Internet search engine, Google, use a firm called PharmacyChecker.com to verify that drugs are dispensed legally. But this week’s report said even with that protection, drugs were purchased with ease.

Google has not been mentioned by the two firms as a search engine that accepts ads from rogue pharmacies.

But John Horton, president of Legitscript.com, said more than 80 percent of Yahoo’s Internet pharmacy ads “were operating contrary to federal and state laws.”

In one instance, a researcher from the firm asked a representative from “Pharmacybuycheap.com” whether he needed a doctor’s prescription for Tramadol, a powerful muscle relaxant which has been known to be addictive.

“No, you do not need a prescription from a doctor,” came the reply, according to the report.

CNN attempted to reach a representative of “Pharmacybuycheap.com,” but the company did not return requests for comment by phone or e-mail.

In an e-mail to CNN, a spokesperson for Yahoo said the company has “strict guidelines and policies in place” for all search advertising and, “All known violators are removed from the Yahoo network.”

“In addition, we have implemented a number of protective measures to protect the marketplace, including a more robust manual review process,” the statement said. Online pharmacies wishing to advertise on Yahoo must undergo a “rigorous” review by PharmacyChecker, and companies that do not pass that review “may not participate in Yahoo’s search marketing program.”

“As this report illustrates, the online pharmacy marketplace is challenging to police,” Yahoo said. “However, we take swift action when we become aware of violators and we have a number of safeguards in place to protect our advertisers and users.”

In 2008, CNN aired several stories documenting rogue online pharmacies that dispensed prescription drugs without a valid doctor’s authorization. CNN was able to order the powerful anti-depressant Prozac by simply filing in a form and pressing a button, and the drugs arrived via express mail the next day.

Kansas authorities are prosecuting a rural pharmacy that sent the muscle relaxant Soma to a Wichita man who eventually committed suicide by ingesting dozens of Soma pills. The drugs came from the pharmacy via an online site.

Mark and JoLane Poindexter face felony counts of computer crime, conspiracy to commit computer crime and commercial bribery, along with misdemeanor violations of Kansas pharmacy laws. The state closed their drugstore in Lyons, northwest of Wichita, in March 2008.

Rick Cloxin, their former chief pharmacist, has pleaded no contest to 14 misdemeanor counts and is awaiting sentencing.
