Patients cautioned against fake drugs sold online

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 50 percent of drugs purchased through the Internet are fake, according to a report in Al-Riyadh Arabic daily.

With an alarming increase in fraud involving pharmaceutical products and equipment, several specialists and experts urged authorities to take stringent punitive action against the fraudsters. The Shoura Council is expected to recommend amendments to the Kingdom’s Pharmaceutical Law in the near future, such as imposing a maximum jail term of five years and a fine of SR5 million to people who commit fraud.

Wael Al-Qassim, an official at the Drugs and Medical Equipment Committee at the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry, warned against the fraud involving electronically marketed drugs.

“Commercial fraud involving drugs and medical equipment has become a global phenomenon. The WHO asserts that about 10 percent of pharmaceutical products marketed worldwide is counterfeit. This percentage is 30 as far as developing countries are concerned. There have been instances of commercial fraud reported in the case of mortal conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Regarding medical equipment and health care products, there are plenty of fake items, including contact lenses, syringes, surgical equipment and wheelchairs,” he said, while urging sick people to buy pharmaceutical products from approved dealers and licensed pharmacies.

“About 50 percent of products marketed through the Internet are fake,” he said while quoting the WHO report. “In such cases, the loss is not that of money but also that of human beings. Proper awareness among customers as well as stringent punitive action against the fraudsters are the major ways to combat this phenomenon.”

Al-Qassim also underscored the need to take preemptive measures such as collecting information about fake medical products, and extending cooperation and coordination among the concerned agencies in combating all types of fraud occurring in the pharmaceutical field.

Khaled Muhammad Taiba, chairman of the board of directors of the Saudi Society for the Hearing Impaired, said there has been a huge demand for medical equipment and instruments with the establishment of a large number of hospitals, health centers and laboratories across the Kingdom. “Some weak-minded and greedy people are striving to exploit this situation through their involvement in various types of commercial fraud in this vital and sensitive sector. They supply fake medical equipment and instruments used by doctors, technicians and nurses. They are also engaged in selling household medical instruments such as those for testing blood pressure and diabetes,” he said.

Taiba noted that Saudi Food and Drug Administration has introduced and strictly implementing a mechanism to monitor and ensure quality and standards of medical equipment and instruments either manufactured in the Kingdom or imported from outside.

“Even though the authority is keen in maintaining all the required standards and quality for the drugs and medical equipment available in the market, there are some fraudsters managed to smuggle in duplicate and low-quality products. Some doctors are also conniving with these companies,” he said.

On his part, Abdul Rahman Al-Husseini, deputy chairman of the Shariah Health Authority in Jeddah, has pointed out that fake doctors are behind the pharmaceutical fraud.

“If they managed to obtain fake certificates and dare to practice illegally, then they have no hesitation to prescribe fake drugs and unlicensed medical equipment for patients,” he said, while noting that such doctors accept commission from dealers of these equipment and instruments.

Former mayor sentenced for online pharmaceutical drug sales

A well-known Miami-Dade lawyer who pleaded guilty to selling tens of millions in pharmaceutical drugs without prescriptions on an Internet site serving buyers across the country was sentenced to 40 months by a federal judge in California on Thursday.

Robert Smoley, a former mayor of North Bay Village who has represented numerous high-profile clients during his career, admitted he and others distributed in excess of $48 million worth of drugs through his company, United Mail Pharmacy Services.

Federal agents say the 59-year-old attorney set up an elaborate distribution network from a warehouse in Florida, where he and others shipped drugs after taking orders over the Internet and call centers in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Smoley admitted to selling more than seven million pills through more 17 online pharmacy sites – with most of the orders between 2001 and 2008.


“The Smoley drug trafficking organization fed the habits of drug seekers while its members chose profits over the health and well-being of those customers,” said DEA special agent Anthony Williams after Smoley’s guilty plea.

The onetime mayor took orders from customers who filled out online orders for medications, but no effort was made to ensure the information they provided was accurate, the plea agreement says.

The orders were then reviewed by doctors who were paid between $2 and $5 per order, with some doctors approving up to 500 orders per day.

Smoley admitted to encouraging doctors to review as many orders as possible each day, knowing they did not conduct physical exams – or review medical paperwork – for his customers.

For years, he managed to conceal the millions his organization reaped by shifting the money through various accounts set up at U.S. banks, court records state.


Though he had been under investigation for several years by federal agents in California, he was finally caught in early 2008 when he ordered more than half a million drugs from an undercover DEA agent.

He pleaded guilty before federal Judge Jeffrey White in San Francisco in November to conspiracy to distribute schedule III and IV controlled substances and conspiracy to launder money.

A practicing attorney since 1978, Smoley served as mayor of North Bay Village from 1980 to 1982, but left office after a controversial term in which citizens waged a recall effort against him and two commissioners.

His most high profile case came in 1991 when he represented Jeff and Kathy Willets, the Fort Lauderdale couple who made international news when they set up a $2,000 a week sex business out of their home, servicing the city’s vice mayor and others.


Over the course of his 33-year career, he also represented several high-power officials, including Dade Circuit Court Judge Alfonso Sepe during a bitter judicial race in 1982.

Miami lawyer Richard Sharpstein, who represented Smoley during his drug case, said his client opened his business “fully believing that the Internet pharmacy was legal. Unfortunately for him, over the past five years the government has reversed its position and he was caught in the web.”
