Since so many of our members order ED meds on-line (BTW, they're the most counterfeited drugs), I figured the link to the FDA article about scammers focusing on internet pharmacy customers might be useful info. I guess the usual advice of being wary of anyone asking for money applies.

Personally, I think this is sound advice, quoted from the above article:

The FDA also reminds consumers that pharmaceutical products offered online and by telephone by sources of unknown origin can pose a substantial health risk. Products recovered during this investigation that were purchased from online or telephone sources have been found to contain trace amounts of heroin, other undisclosed and potentially harmful active pharmaceutical ingredients, or no active ingredient at all. Purchases should only be made from licensed pharmacies located in the United States. In addition to the increased risk of purchasing unsafe and ineffective drugs from Web sites operating outside the law, personal data may be compromised.
