  • Trusted Meds Online - http://trusted-drugs-online.com/
  • World Of Drugs - http://world-of-drugs.com/

The sites are blatantly fraudulent and should not be mistaken for legitimate online pharmacies. As of October 2010, for instance, they are including free tabs of "generic Viagra" with every drug ordered.(There is no generic for Viagra that can legally be sold in Europe or North America.) They even include them with drugs in the nitrate family -- a potentially lethal interaction. Either they are not real drugs (quite likely -- they promise their affiliate up to 75% commissions), or they are murdering their customers.

Ordering from these sites would be equivalent to simply handing one's personal information and credit card number to a criminal standing on the street corner selling narcotics.

Extract:

Acomplia (rimonabant) is well-known as the name of a drug previously approved in the European Union. It has never been approved by FDA, and in June 2007, FDA’s Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee unanimously voted not to recommend approval of the drug because of increased risk of neurological and psychiatric side effects including seizures, depression, anxiety, insomnia, aggressiveness, and suicidal thoughts among patients.
