Police Stop Woman on Street Selling Counterfeits

7 12 2015

150515_2020_2_1014_16x9_992I was looking at counterfeit drug videos today and found one from ABC news posted this past summer about a women on the street allegedly selling counterfeit prescription drugs in LA.

Please click HERE to watch the short video.

She says she wasn’t selling any and then they even ask her if she is worried about her customers taking these and she flat out says, “no” while shaking her head. He continued to ask her, “are you worried about the medicine?” She was then silent. Investigators say she’s likely part of something much larger. They believe foreign counterfeiters are supplying her. Then the reporter asks, “how much money do you make in a week?” She said about $800 or $600 a week. The policeman then says that it’s a lie. To which he says, she easily makes $1,000 in a week.

People are saying they are having reactions to the drugs she gave them and they think it’s safe because it has the company’s info on it and the woman is older – they trust her. So they believe it’s from that company and it’s safe. You need to be careful with what you buy and where you buy it from! Be smart.

Here is a transcript from the video clip if you’d like to read it, I copied it from ABC…
