Rusticdog should love this one!

And if you've ever wondered what would happen if you actually respond to one of those Viagra ads, it turns out you will almost always get some pills - real or not - in return for your credit card payment, as long as the company has a way of getting their wares past Customs. And if you're not satisfied with the product, getting a refund is easy. These companies need to fly under the radar, and want as little attention from credit card companies as possible.

Prices have certainly dropped haven't they...unfortunately the blurb at the end fails to properly account for just how dodgy these pharmaceuticals can be. No way of knowing what's really in those pills especially with what's coming out of India, Thailand etc...getting a refund is pretty meaningless when you've taken dodgy viagra with a heart condition :mrgreen:
