The Polish police have recently arrested 12 people suspected of selling counterfeit Viagra on the Internet since 2007. The suspects have been arrested in Polish cities Warsaw, Szczecin and Katowice.
The suspects registered web domains in other countries, including Malaysia, and have sold the fake pills, containing carbon and plaster, to more than 10,000 Poles at prices three times lower than the original. The criminal group, also suspected of money laundering, earned EUR 1.8 million (USD 2.6 million).
