Consumers have been warned in a report that drugs sold via online pharmacy sites are likely to be fake.

Consumers have been warned in a report that drugs sold via online pharmacy sites are likely to be fake.

The research by fraud monitoring firm MarkMonitor showed just four out of more than 3,000 sites investigated were Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites.

Deep discounts of around 75% on some products indicate the products could be questionable, the research showed.

Sites that sell drugs in bulk quantities by the pill also risk introducing potentially bogus medications into the market.
