Enforcement: Seizure of 67 website domain names involved in selling misbranded and counterfeit prescription drugs in the US

April 26th, 2016 - www.justice.gov

On April 26, seizure orders against 67 domain names of commercial websites engaged in the illegal sale and distribution of counterfeit and prescription drugs were executed late in April 2016. The seized domains are in the custody of the federal government.

The US Attorney Bill Nettles said “to be safe and effective, prescription drugs must be taken under the care and supervision of appropriate health care professionals; not purchased off the internet from unknown and unregulated foreign sources.”
