Fight the Fakes partners the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP) and the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP) have launched a 520ft2 billboard in Times Square, New York, warning consumers to be vigilant when purchasing medicines online.
The ad, which will run through Jan 2015, highlights that 97% of online pharmacies in the US are illegal, and do not comply with US laws and standards. Purchasing medicines from these illegitimate websites is effectively, “gambling with your life”.
