Alias V.E.P. Virility Enlarge Pills, Power Gain+, MaxGain+, MaxGain, VPXL, Express Herbals, Elite Herbal, MaxHerbal, and Herbal King, MaxGentleman, Dr.MaXman among others, this is a highly spammed website. This is the product analyzed by the BBC's Simon Cox in a report on his radio show "The Investigation." bbc.co.uk: Super scam me, Dec. 13, 2007. The tablets Cox had analyzed as part of his investigation contained no active ingredients. (Since there is no product known to increase penis size in males who have reached sexual maturity, it hardly matters.)
Often the spam emails only contain domain names that redirect to a destination site, such as ebaygods.com, where victims are defrauded through sale and delivery (or sometimes nondelivery) of fake drugs, and appropriation of their personal details for use in future fraud.
MaxGain+ exploits many different methods of redirections to try to escape detection.
Geographical locations are India and Hong Kong.

The registrar who accepted this criminal spammer's contract for domain name registration was
Domain Name: ABLEPHARMACY.COM Registrar: COMPUTER SERVICES LANGENBACH GMBH DBA JOKER.COM
To this day, this criminal spammer still uses many registered domains which are widely spammed. The registrar who is still accepting his contracts for registrations under the same registrant details is COMPUTER SERVICES LANGENBACH GMBH DBA JOKER.COM
Other fake company names that are a "fingerprint" for these registrations include

Any registration from these false companies constitutes sufficient evidence for any law abiding registrar to suspend the domain.

Before and After Photos
Most of these sites attempt to convince visitors their products are effective by showing "before" and "after" photos of male genitalia.
Anyone with photo manipulation software can create realistic appearing photos of unrealistically large anatomy. That type of photo manipulation is commonly done for porn images. Men should not accept photographs as evidence that anyone with genitalia that size exist, let alone that they got that way from using one of these products.
An example based on a real image from one of these spamvertised sites is at
(image alert: this is an image of nude male genitalia)
How to Report this Spam
Generally, the most effective way to demand that registrars cancel their illegal contracts with criminals is to use the tool provided for Windows users at Complainterator.
If the registrar is CSL, however, be aware that they refuse to act on email complaints, so you can ignore the mandatory ICANN registered email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At www.joker.com click on Register. Become a registered client. Once registered, you can log in and fill out a complaint form.
- Register at www.joker.com
- Login as a registered user
- Select "Support/Contact"
- Select "Report spammers/phishing"
- Fill in the relevant CSL registered spammed domain or its name server

Note that you can generate the text of the complaint using Complainterator and copy/paste it into the web page.
