www.crimemedicine.com is an information campaign from the Swedish Medical Products Agency. Its purpose is to inform people about the risks involved in bying medicines from unknown Internet sites. 50% of medicines sold on disreputable sites are counterfeit and may contain just about anything, which means that they are potentially lethal. Internet trading in counterfeit medicines is increasing in leaps and bounds. The Medical Products Agency has therefore been tasked by the Swedish Government with launching a public information campaign.
