Fake Generic Viagra Site Using Google Name

By Nathan Weinberg

The Register writes about a fake pharmacy, which purports to sell pills that don’t exist, and uses the Google name to try to appear legitimate. The site by ED Choice, which sells generic versions of drugs like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis (none of which exist in what I like to call “the real world”), features a Google logo with the “o”s replaced by two li’l Viagra pills, as well as this text:

We’ve just launched a pharmaceutical interface for Google, as well as several new features that will improve the Google experience for people buying pills and using pharmaceutical interfaces.

We are really pleased to have worked on a launch that will help people use pharmacy and surgery.

We are currently working to make it available to even more users with more language interfaces.

Visit Google’s accredited pharmacy.

It never ceases to amaze me just how many businesses rely entirely on just how freakin’ stupid people are. An intelligent person would never fall for this; and yet, people make money.
