From todays news:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/5038330.stm

Does anyone know what action, if any, has been taken against the online pharmacies which were benefitting from this nasty little scam?

As a side note, after posting this query a few days ago I found spam in my mailbox this morning on the subject 'Advantages of online pharmacies!' Hope that is just coincidence... delete delete! Mad
