The Swine: Dangerous Flu Scams Proliferate

Watch out for fake cures for swine flu.

As flu season gets into full swing, con artists are peddling an increasing number of fake–and sometimes dangerous–drugs that purport to cure or prevent H1N1 to a population increasingly nervous about getting sick.

The Food and Drug Administration recently ordered a bunch of these advertised remedies from a proliferation of Internet sites that promised prevention or cures. Several sites advertising Tamiflu–a costly, but effective treatment for Swine flu–sent out bogus products.

One of the orders, which arrived in an unmarked envelope postmarked in India, contained tablets made up of talc and acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol), according to the FDA. Others contained some of the active ingredients in Tamiflu, but not in the same proportions as prescribed treatments. Few of the web sites required a prescription.
