4,600 Drug Sites Busted

    Linda Buquet Affiliate affiliate

    I always warn affiliates about promoting online pharmacy or RX sites, it's just not worth the risks. 18 people were arrested for allegedly selling drugs illegally, including the ringleaders of more than 4,600 rogue Internet pharmacy websites. Agents shut down all the sites the suspects controlled in the year long investigation dubbed "Operation CYBERx."

    I have to assume that for this many sites to be involved, some type of affiliate marketing was involved, although affiliates were not mentioned in any of the reports I read. The risk to affiliates is not only coming under government scrutiny or potential arrest, but also the certainty of not being paid when these illegal companies go under. Affiliates - JUST SAY NO to online drug sales!

    The good news is that these people were pushing tons of RX drug SPAM, so hopefully our inboxes will be a little cleaner after this bust.
