Chinese Man in the United States Sentenced to Federal Prison

19 11 2010

In Houston, Texas a 59-year-old man by the name of Kum Leung Chow, aka Lawrence Chow, was sentenced to one year and a day in federal prison.  He was charged with conspiring to distribute counterfeit pharmaceuticals and trafficking in pharmaceuticals bearing false labeling and counterfeit trademarks.

The investigation was conducted by agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Office of Criminal Investigations. He was arrested January 27, 2010 and pleaded guilty on June 28, 2010 to the charges. He has been in custody since the day of his capture and will remain in custody until he finishes out his sentence. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samuel Louis, Southern District of Texas, prosecuted the case.

This whole investigation started in the beginning of 2009 when he used a Hong Kong based company called Kingdom International Enterprises LTD to acquire and distribute Cialis and Viagra in the UNITED STATES! These drugs are for sexual performance (if you didn’t know). He was offering them for $10 a box on two different INTERNET websites.

This is happening in the United States whether you want to believe it or not. This man was selling you your Viagra. Your condoms you purchase can also be fake, your cough syrup and even your hand lotion. Counterfeit does not mean they are life-threatening, but you do not know.
