Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson’s Quote About The Counterfeit Phamaceuticals.

“Counterfeit pharmaceuticals is one of the World’s fastest growing illicit industries. As the organized crime groups behind this emerging threat become more and more sophisticated, it is all the more critical for the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) to continue strengthening its domestic and international partnerships to stop the flow of these illegal and dangerous products into Canada. This is a global challenge. We continue to strongly support INTERPOL’s International Operation which allows us to define the broader landscape of this criminal trend and focus our efforts more effectively.”

{RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) reminds the public that buying counterfeit and unlicensed medicines online is unsafe and can even be fatal. It also increases the risks of Credit Card Fraud, Identity Theft and Malware Viruses. In addition, while users may not be aware, when buying these medicines they directly support Organized Criminal Groups. The dangerous counterfeit and illicit medicines are ERECTILE DYSFUNCTIONAL PILLS, WEIGHT LOSS PILLS, ANTIBIOTICS, HORMONE REPLACEMENT, MUSCLE RELAXANTS, BETA BLOCKERS, AND BRONCHODILATORS.}

    One of the biggest obstacles to over-come in fighting this problem as I see it comes in tracking down where the sites where these products are sold is finding out where the real end of the line is. Talented hackers can exploit weaknesses in poorly maintained servers and make site for the sale of illicit drugs appear for at least a time to originate in country other than where the orders and electronic funds actually go. The successful individuals in this trade constantly shift hosting servers and obscure their tracks with growing sophistication. It’s hard to direct concerted efforts until you know where to go and by then they’ve usually moved on. The one thing that strikes me as odd here in the States is that there isn’t a widely recognized effort to educate people to the inherent dangers in engaging in this activity…


  2. I fully agree with you the organized crime groups work with great sophistication so that they never get caught. RCMP in Canada keeps warning people through television and other sources of news to be very careful and not to buy any medication on the web. I hope more concerted efforts are made to educate public on a vast scale about the dangers lurking on the Internet. Our honorable commissioner is taking practical steps in this direction. RCMP seems very active in monitoring people on the web. Lets hope for the best. Thanks for taking your precious time to express your valuable opinion. I appreciate the input. See you soon. Take care and have a lovely day.


  3. counterfeit medicines and drugs are two of the most horrible trades human beings have mastered in!


    • Yes Sharmishtha, it has become a global challenge now. Concrete steps in this regard are necessary, and RCMP and the media here are doing a great service to people by educating them about the dangers of these illicit pharmaceuticals. Our Honorable commissioner has promised to take care of the problem along with other global partners. Lets hope for the best. Take care and have a lovely day.

    The worst thing to happen (Or best for the Criminal) was the Internet. You can hide anywhere on any server in the background of any website.

    I know a friend who nearly had a heart attack buying steroids for his Gym workouts. I called him an Idiot before and he is an idiot still..



    • Yes Shaun, you are so right. Internet is a blessing for the law abiding and a haven for crime groups. It is a bleak picture. So sorry for your naive friend, even sensible people get carried away sometimes. They are ill and vulnerable and these criminals thrive on their plight. So sad. There should be more public education in this regard. I went to your site and would be back to comment, heat gets me sometimes and I get a headache and can’t do anything. I am very impressed with your life story. Liked the picture of your dad. You are a very brave person and I respect you very much. Forgive me I will be back to read more. Take care. May peace be with you.

        Thank you!! Kind words indeed 🙂 lol…
        I am sorry for your headaches, one of the things I don’t get, but I have had woodworm, so that makes up for it. lol

        Ta x


      • My pleasure. LOL I don’t know who is better off you with your woodworm or me with my headaches. I think we are both at the same level of discomfort. Evening time makes me feel better when it gets less warmer although we live close to the water. Well take care of yourself and hope you feel better soon. Take care.


      • prayingforoneday says:

        ha ha ,,,We all have woodworm or something 🙂

        And same to you, I know pain, and I know living in it is awful, but I also know it can drive us on to write, care, share and do more than we would if we were not in pain. Pain gave me a heart and a caring/sharing side. I know many others say this…

        You also, thanks x

    One thing that MIGHT help stop this type of thing is maybe making medicines less expensive. I cannot comprehend sometimes the cost of prescriptions some people have to pay. Thousands of dollars a month. WOW! Kinda can’t blame them for looking for a more affordable source.

    I would be too afraid to buy a drug that was not from my medical plans pharmacy! But really, why is some medicine so outrageously expensive? And, of course, it seems it hits the seniors with limited income the most! (I’m in the USA.)


    • I think proper pricing will help everyone. Elderly are the hardest hit. In Canada certain medications are very expensive but elderly are covered by the medical plans so the problem is not so much. But still I agree with you spending thousands of dollars a month on medications is outrageous. Internet criminals thrive on the needs of people. A lot needs to be done in this area and our honorable commissioner and RCMP are working towards these issues, and trying to educate people through the media on the dangers of buying online medications. Lets hope for the best. Good to hear from you and I and my hubby enjoyed yet another breakfast with avocado recipe you posted. It is our favorite now. Take care.
