Online Drugs

According to the U.S. General Accounting Office: ", drugs bought online from other countries - including Argentina, Spain, Thailand, Pakistan and Turkey - are more likely to contain harmful substances or inadequate instructions than those purchased in the United States or Canada. Last month, the GAO released a study about online drug sales."

Establishing credibility online for new brands requires some serious thinking by the International Trade Association or any other trade body looking after business ethics [Sal, you know of any?]. I searched the website for documentation in this regard, but drew a blank.

Mohsin suggests looking at Securities and Exchange Commission [US] and Hoovers.

End user education [against financial scams] is more important however monitoring fraudlent companies online seems equally daunting a task. Thoughts?

Its not only companys and finacial schemes, but every webpage and piece of information available online. You can not be sure of their credibility at all.
