Earning revenue while participating in a pharmaceutical affiliate network, the scammers behind these campaigns have a proven record of impersonating legitimate and trusted brands in an attempt to trick users into clicking on the links. The ultimate question – is someone actually buying these counterfeit drugs? The answer is surprisingly, yes, with the U.S accounting for 72% of pharmaceutical orders, according to research published last year.

Users are advised to avoid interacting with such Web sites, and to consider reporting them as fraudulent immediately.
