If you’ve noticed you’ve been getting a lot less Viagra spam emails of late then it may well be down to the fact that police in Russia have shut down a major Viagra ring.

The website; spamlt.com, had been working in collaboration with a number of spam organisations to promote the sale of counterfeit versions of the erection dysfunction pill.

Internet experts believe that the amount of Viagra related spam has now dropped by 20%. They have since issued an arrest warrant for Mr.Igor Gussev who they believe to have been in charge of the Viagra scam.

Amongst the multitude of questions he’s set to face from the police; it’s likely he’ll be quizzed as why he was operating a pharmacy without adequate licensing.

Officers who raided Gussev’s home found a number of hard drives and laptops with incriminating evidence as well as a selection of pharmaceutical drug that had been manufactured India.

Millions in counterfeit profits Police officials believe that the bogus outfit made somewhere in the region of £1m. Gussev’s lawyers are arguing that he had been out of the country at the time the Viagra scam was put in place. Viagra fraud is rife throughout Russia and the prevention of such a large scale ring is beneficial for the industry as a whole.

The dangers of counterfeits

There have been a number of fatalities linked with counterfeit versions of the popular erectile pill. The best way to determine whether a source is reputable when purchasing Viagra is to ensure it has legitimate contact details and a full patient support team as we do here at HealthExpress.

Anybody suffering the symptoms associated with impotence are advised to see their GP to determine whether it is the result of any more serious underlying conditions.
