"Pharma spam" includes spam brands promoting medications, herbs, nutritional supplements and devices advertised as improving health, augmenting body parts, increasing physical capabilities, etc. Because customers would normally consider reputation as well as price when choosing an online health store, spamming is a terrible marketing idea. The sites that spam are heavily weighted towards those that

  • sell products of questionable quality[1]
  • sell prescription medications to customers who have no physician prescriptions
  • sell products that cannot document their claims of effectiveness
  • don't sell anything and just collect the credit card numbers of people attempting to make purchases.

These issues are covered in more detail in the Pharma_spam_overview article in this wiki.
