Bogus Viagra dealer gets 10 months in jail

A man was sentenced to 10 months in prison and fined 2,000 yuan (US$314) for selling bogus sex drugs online, the Jing'an District People's Court said yesterday.

The 24-year-old convict, Yang Lei, sold 46 fake Viagra pills through his online shop from January to June. Each pill was bought at less than 2 yuan and was sold at 30 yuan, earning him a total of 1,844 yuan.

Yang said he came to Shanghai in 2007 and opened a courier service in 2008, but it didn't run well. So he closed the business and established an online shop in February 2010 to sell fake sex drugs through a home computer.

In June this year, a middle-aged man in Shanghai bought four fake Viagra pills for 220 yuan and found there was no Chinese description on the wrapper. He then reported to the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration.

Yang admitted that he knew the pills he sold were counterfeit because a real Viagra pill costs about 100 yuan.

Yang pleaded guilty in the court and said he sold fake drugs to make a living.
